Days of Advent, Seasons

2020 Preparing for Advent

Ideally, a human life should be a constant pilgrimage of discovery. The most exciting discoveries happen at the frontiers. When you come to know something new, you come closer to yourself and to the world. Discovery enlarges and refines your sensibility. When you discover something, you transfigure some of the forsakenness of the world.

It has been quite a year! Thank you for your continued support of my blog. This post is to let you know that I will not be posting daily Advent meditations this year. With two cross-country moves, struggling to find employment, and trying to hold this complicated year – I have not been able to post regularly. However, there will be one or two posts a week throughout December in celebration of this wonderful time of year.

To continue to keep this blog ad-free, I depend on your donations. Please consider supporting this site by making a contribution here.
