Lux In Tenebris Lucet: Saturday, December 24
Day 27 of our 28-day Advent journey of mini-dispatches to give you pause and light.
“This was a liminal moment in the calendar, a time between two worlds, between two phases of the year, when worshippers were about to cross a boundary but hadn’t yet done so. Samhain was a way of marking that ambiguous moment when you didn’t know who you were about to become, or what the future would hold. It was a celebration of limbo.”
― Katherine May from Wintering
“For now we see through a glass, darkly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; but then shall I know, even as also I am known.”
—1 Corinthians 13:12 (KJ21)

And because it’s Christmas/Hannukah, and Solstice and Kwanzaa are fast upon us, I wanted to do something special: All new and current subscribers at any level are entered to win a drawing for signed and inscribed copies of my books The God Factor and Sin Boldly.
All paying subscribers are entered to win a drawing for framed copy of ANY ORIGINAL PHOTO of mine that appears on This Numinous World. Size determined by resolution but most can be printed well at 5x7 or 8x10.
** I’ll announce the winners of the drawings on Sunday, January 1, 2023 **
