As part of our Advent theme, “We Have Gifts to Open,” we are reading Richard Rohr’s book, “Hope Against Darkness: The Transforming Vision of Saint Francis in an Age of Anxiety,” which explores the gifts of light that can be found in the dark, challenging times of life. Rohr writes: “Spiritual transformation is often thought of as movement from darkness to light. In one sense that is true, but in another sense it is totally false. We forget that darkness is always present alongside the light. Pure light blinds, only the mixture of darkness and light allow us to see. Shadows are required for our seeing.” Please read the book and come prepared for this wonderful review and discussion that will add new meaning to your Advent journey.
