Based on the book by the same name by Eric Elnes, is about
“seeing life through new eyes, recognizing that experiences of
failure, emptiness, and uncertainty are as critical for finding our
way through life as they are unavoidable.”
We will see how experiences of life through the “dark wood”
are actually clues to our “calling” or “life path.” How can
the struggles of life be the seedbed of spiritual
awakening to the fullness of life?
The scripture texts for our journey through the Advent and Christmas cycle paint a picture of the world
into which God came in human flesh. Like our own time, this world seemed an unlikely or even
hostile environment for this fragile incarnation of peace and hope. This season we will proclaim
the entrance “into this world” again of the light for which we still so desperately
yearn. What are we called to bring into this world?
