Following a very peaceful time of Taize worship this evening, we set up a few things for Advent - the advent wreath and our liturgical tree. I began to get quite excited about the prospect of a new church year beginning. One of the Taize chants is:
Within our darkest night, you kindle the fire that never dies away, never dies away
Right now I'm longing for the light and for the hope that Advent brings. And I really need the warmth of that fire!
