Thoughts from one of my favorite devotional writers – Rev. Jan Richardson – in her book, Night Visions.


“The season of Advent means there is something on the horizon the likes of which we have never seen before.

It is not possible to keep it from coming, because it will. That’s just how Advent works.  What is possible is to not see it, to miss it, to turn just as it brushes past you.  And you begin to grasp what it was you missed, like Moses in the cleft of the rock, watching God’s hindquarters fade in the distance.

So Stay, Sit, Linger, Tarry, Ponder, Wait, Behold, Wonder.

There will be time enough for running. For rushing. For worrying. For pushing.

For now, Stay. Wait.

Something is on the horizon.”


Rev. Mitzi
