Sacred Creation Event 6 – ‘Celebration of the Winter Solstice – the Coming of the Light’
Sacred Creation – Heaven and Earth are Full of your Glory
The day of my spiritual awakening was the day I saw -and Knew I saw-all things in God and God in all things. Mechtild of Magdeburg
All life is interconnected and woven into the great tapestry of life – each life has its part, is necessary, is willed and loved by God. At the Margaret Aylward centre we are committed to celebrating God’s gift of creation and raising awareness of our Christian duty towards its protection and flourishing.
Beginning in September we are hosting a monthly series of events exploring and celebrating the Divine Energy that lives and moves throughout creation. These events are intended to help us reflect on our place within creation and to see the hand of God in the cycles and rhythm of the year.
‘Celebration of the Winter Solstice – the Coming of the Light’ – The Solstice is a moment of divine cosmic grace when the Earth is furthest from the Sun, it is a time of darkness but in this darkness comes a great light. We celebrate this moment of the close and holy darkness.
`We will recover our sense of wonder and our sense of the sacred only if we appreciate the universe beyond ourselves as a revelatory experience of that….presence whence all things came into being.` Thomas Berry – The Great work
