WELCOME TO BARBARAH’S BLOG!
This weekend we enter the beautiful Christmas season known as Advent. During this time, Christians prepare themselves spiritually to celebrate the Birth of Christ. This is the third year we celebrate this season together on this blog. And each year, we’ve presented rituals/traditions special for the season. I’ve tweaked them a bit, added the audio feature, but I resist tampering with their sameness because they come from an honored place in my spiritual holiday tradition.
Honoring traditions is a gift we give each other on holidays. The special preparations and foods…the search for the perfect Christmas tree…the sequence of the activities…re-membering ancestors with stories and anecdotes that energize them…their similarities and differences we see in each other…the shared events that weave a tapestry identifying a family and its values. And the reminder that while our lives are so different than those who came before us, they are in many ways the same.
YOU’LL FIND ADVENT: SPIRITUAL PREPARATION FOR CHRISTMAS, LISTED IN THE RIGHT HAND COLUMN, UNDER CATEGORIES.
The narrative and Imagery exercises you find are recommended for this first Sunday of Advent on December 2,2012.
We’ll resume Colette’s Imagery next week– And also lead you to the narrative and Imagery for the Second Sunday of Advent
Hope your Thanksgiving was all you wished for. Blessings, Barbarah
