Solstice

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                                        It shall be that in the labyrinth of days and seasons, even the sun whose rising makes its way along its close and tended garden path day by day, bringing summer here, and winter there, shall turn back and go no farther, but seek its other home as well, and days that have grown long retreat, or shadows shrink that have increased, so that there shall be no dominance of either light or darkness, day or night, but only dappled beauty, life and death, all things gathered up in grace, as there shall be neither happiness alone nor sorrow, but joy in all things. On that day when the sun turns, remember and be mindful, grateful for both summer and winter, for no time or season remains forever, but comes only to marks its passing; so that you may neither cling nor forget, but with the sun rise in a new place every day, and be present in this life, this day, each moment we are given, in gratitude and wonder, praising the One who is always present, always attentive, always in love.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
