Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Advent in October

October 16, 2005

The wife and I visited Glorieta, New Mexico to enjoy what has quickly become (to quote Ryan Sharp) our Advent. Describing this thing is hard, and usually results in me speaking negatively: it isn’t a conference, it’s not exactly a retreat, it isn’t especially religious, and it’s not really a vacation. But it is a kind of pilgrimage, and a place to rest and reorient, to catch up with old friends (some for the first time), to make new ones, to listen to God and one another, to experience creation, to taste wonderful food and drink, to feel great music and poetry, and to remember what life is all about.
