Do you hear what I hear?


Mistletoe grows on trees all over the Inland Northwest, like this Ponderosa pine tree on High Drive in Spokane.

In the Christian tradition - Advent is here. A time of waiting, reflecting, listening in the darkness - waiting for the light. 

In U.S. Catholic, an essay published a few years ago always centers me at this time of year; I am reminded that the Spirit moves through all people and God being the creative being that God is…often sends prophets who are the least likely folks we would think to be prophets. People like Bonnie.

 May this time of winter darkness, be illuminated by voices weak, strong, daring, longing. And may we listen and take heed.
