Equinox as a Prayer Pause
This Sunday is the autumn equinox in the southern hemisphere, and in the Celtic spiritual tradition, this is an opportunity to embrace the moment of pause between Summer and Winter.
Being Present to Presence
The Call of Wilderness
The wilderness is a wonderful analogy for times of uncertainty, bewilderment and upheaval, where we are invited to let go of what we cling to, our usual roles and identities, the places where we usually find comfort and safety. Here we are left stripped and vulnerable, which feels scary, but is at the same time immensely freeing, because in this barren place we discover a pure longing for God, and this makes us accessible to God in a whole new depth.
