Is it mere coincidence that the violent insurrection to take down
democracy in America took place on Epiphany Day, January 6? This day of
politically motivated violence is still playing out in legislatures
around the country and among politicians whose lives were put in grave
danger that day. It was the 12th day of Christmas, the day when the
Christ child is visited by "pagan" seekers, or astrologers who followed
a star to find him.
What deeper meaning is being offered us on this, the first
anniversary of this "day of infamy" from within America?
Is it about waking up to our capacity for evil? For denial?
For power-over dynamics that make Patriarchy flourish and
Lies dominate Truth?
Where do we go from here?
Where is Christmas in all this?
Where is light in the midst of such darkness?
JOIN CREATION IN CRISIS ON JANUARY 6
and hear what
has to say about our current political predicament
and the spiritual issues that lie within.
