To find the child

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                  To find the child one must see the star. To see the star one must go into the darkness, the pain, the fear, the emptiness, the hidden weeping, the heart’s dark wounds. Only in the darkness          can the be stars seen.

To find the child one must hear the angels. To hear the angels one must listen in silence and solitude, in perfect speechlessness, in attentive adoration to the Mystery. Only in such stillness          are the angels heard.

To find the child one must enter the stable. To enter the stable one must stoop, decline all palaces, all safety, all familiarity or fortification, and settle into poverty. Only in such humility          is the stable entered.

To find the child one must see the birth. To see the birth one must be awakened to the heart of all things beating in one’s soul, the light of God shining in one’s hands. One must be willing to speak alone with one’s eyes. Only in awakening          will the birth be seen.

         To find the child,          seek in the darkness,          lay your heart open,          and discover therein          light unconquered.

                Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
