This Advent, we ask "Will You Harbor Me?" We give thanks for the presence of this community of St. Joan of Arc, which harbors us when we doubt, when we despair, when we are on stormy seas, and buffeted by howling winds. We come here to breathe deeply, to rest in the arms of God and our beloved community.
And then, we are sent forth by this community and by our God, because we are made for these times. Clarissa Pinkola Estes writes:"I grew up on the Great Lakes and recognize a seaworthy vessel when I see one. Look out over the prow; there are millions of boats of righteous souls on the waters with you. We are needed. Souls on deck shine like gold in dark times. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. When a great ship is in harbor and moored, it is safe, there can be no doubt. But that is not what great ships are built for."
