Peace, Patience, and Mystery

The Christian Mystic, Meister Eckhart writes, “What does it avail me if this birth takes place unceasingly and yet does not take place within myself?  It is quite fitting, however, that it should take place within me.” During this time of sacred anticipation when religions turn to the power of light, warmth, and company to bolster faith in the eternal change of seasons, we pause to consider what it is that is growing in each of us that will birth joy, wonder, love and courage.
