The SEASON of Advent is a reminder of the growing darkness-
of indifference, hatred, ignorance and pride.
The Advent WREATH is a reminder of the growing power of light
which to Christians is Christ.
This is a good time to check out our lives and see what it is that
distracts us so that we are disconnected from God.
All of the addictions can do that...food, sex, money, work, gambling, etc.
There are also material things like possessions and shopping.
Now most of us shop and cook and get into the hub-bub so the best way
to handle it is to find balance. Just eating one meal together, lighting a candle
and saying a prayer will take the edge off .
I dare you!
