Celtic Advent Begins

Day 27 on Cultivating Sanctuary.

Sometimes the smallest act can have the biggest consequences. Even a small pebble creates ripples.

And this is what I’m inviting you to do for the next 40 days of Celtic Advent…

Make some ripples of beauty, joy, and love.

St John of the Cross writes, “Where there is no love, put love, and you will find love.”

Many years ago I created this calendar for Advent that suggests one simple thing you can do each day that might create a ripple of love moving out into a love-thirsty world.

You can read more about the history of this calendar in this blog post. It’s really three calendars in one, celebrating Advent, the ancient “O Antiphons” and the 12 days of Christmas.

Share widely and freely.

And for some further encouragement, here is a lovely version of the prayer of St Francis (pause the Music for Dreaming to the right >>):

Happy Advent!
