Twelfth day of Christmas

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                    

Twelfth day of Christmas too long, too late for any but those committed unlike others, devoted to something counter to all that out there: in no hurry, impervious to expectation, to quick fix, instant on, no drive-by incarnation: a rhythm from otherwise, a stream from elsewhere within, a blessing that takes more days to take in than most will surrender, infinite heaven on earth, a dwelling among us (most of us uncomprehending) that gestates slowly, emerges only in fullness of time, unfolds leisurely, a faith that gives us, God within us, permission          to sit here                   and ripen.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
