Third Sunday in Advent

For this, the third Sunday in Advent, I offer this beautiful meditation by Jan Richardson.

You hollow us out, God,
so that we may carry you,
and you endlessly fill us
only to be emptied again.

Make smooth our inward spaces
and sturdy,
that we may hold you
with less resistance
and bear you
with deeper grace.

~ from Night Visions: Searching the Shadows of Advent and Christmas
Cleveland: United Church Press, 1998

Be sure to read Jan's Advent posts at The Advent Door. Another inspirational source for Advent is Image & Spirit, the blog of Episcopal Church & Visual Arts.
