Here is how I navigate this season.
I call it my Advent Dark Journal practice.
Today’s post links you to a foundation post about my approach. That is what it is, an approach. I suggest you work with what I put forward, and let the materials in front of you come to life in your hands…the work you are doing, the dishes you are washing, the bulbs you are planting, the real estate you are negotiating, the people you are supporting…make it your own. I will walk along with you from Advent through Epiphany, posting prompts weekly.
Maybe this will be the advent of a few epiphanies?
