Our theme for Advent 2021 at NDPC is “Silent Nights.” Each of the four weeks invites you into the different rhythm of this season. Week 1 focused on slowness–slowing down and perceiving time in a new way. Week 2 focuses on stillness–on “not doing,” on letting God do for us. Week 3 focuses on silence–on the beauty and depth of quiet. Week 4 focuses on the many gifts of darkness.
Rev. Beth Waltemath explores silence. We are drawn to the image of a “silent” night at Christmas time. What is this yearning for silence really about? We read the 39th Psalm and explore the connection between silence, revelation, and healing. We light the 3rd candle together.
