It is late in Advent.  Some of us are weary, some stressed, some relieved to be nearly done. In the midst of all that here is some reading for refreshment.

Rosa shares the beauty of a home visit to a priest with dementia, and the ways the words of Advent engage him.

Melissa shares Joseph’s story, and the change a woman and child make to his life.

Celebrate with Sarah who is enjoying a new baby at her house.  

On Sister Julia’s blog she hosts guest blogger, Rhonda, who writes about porter saints and hospitality.

Marie shares a story of queer holy resistance, and preaches a good word about the Messiah.

Terri shares the challenge of praying for those who trouble us, and speaks a challenging and gracious word into the context of the US post-election.

May you be encouraged by these words from around our blogging community.


Jemma Allen is an Anglican priest and counsellor in Auckland, New Zealand.  Her writing these days is mostly for her graduate research portfolio, but sometimes still on her blog.
