Advent word: Gather

We gather gifts. We gather together. We are gathered by our gathering, the sharing and the exchange. That’s the part that makes us rich. Gather, share, and be enriched. #gather #hui #adventwords2019

Advent word: Harmony

Today friends with a large mulberry tree shared their abundance with us, a juicy mango from the kinder fundraiser of another friends’ son, apricots from our next door neighbour. The world seems a fruitful, friendly place. #harmony #reretahi #adventwords2019

Advent word: Worthy

I’m thinking on fragility and strength today, those bonds like love, blood, family, trust… sometimes they can feel as strong and hard as iron and sometimes as delicate and fragile as a bubble that could easily burst and disappear. We are worthy of these things wherever we find them. Those who affirm us, people who celebrate and grieve with us, people we don’t have to hide or mute part of who we are with. People who accept the call we’ve heard, the choice we’ve made. You are worthy wherever you are. Chosen just as you are. #worthy #paitonu #adventwords2019
