Winter 2016

 

Step Softly

Step softly into your weeping world,

incarnate God;

embrace it with your love.

Bring light into broken lives,

warmth into frozen hearts,

hope to those at war.

May your peace pervade every place.

 

Help us to approach this new year

filled with the joy of your companionship.

as we step out in faith with you,

ready to face the future,

whatever it may hold.

It is the winter in Mount Pearl, in Newfoundland and Labrador, in Canada, and many parts of the world. Here at the Ascension we are adjusting to the New Year, as we have stepped from Christmas and Epiphany, into the new routines of 2016. We look forward in anticipation for Lent and the lead up to the resurrection.

 

Yet in this time, we are caught with many others in winter. It can be a cold and forbidding place for some; it can be a place of joy and frivolity for others. No matter how we experience it, may we be reminded, as Carol Dixon expresses, that it is a place for God. In winter we find Christ’s light, we receive Christ’s warmth, we are joined with the incarnate God, bringing joy and peace.

 

May we consider these themes as we journey through winter; in our recreation, in our work, and in the stillness of the winter storms.
