The days between Christmas and the New Year have such a liminal energy to them- things are changing swiftly, the year is sweeping out; so much has happened in the past three months with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, and then suddenly, that's all going to be over; life will return to a more ordinary and recognizable pace.
As a kid, this was always a magical time, a time we enjoyed away from school and playing with our Christmas presents and thinking about how great things were.
As an adult, the liminal aspect is just completely and utterly in our face; things are different suddenly, things are changing.
Yet the energy flowing at this point is amazing if you open yourself to it.
Let us try to open ourselves to the secrets among the energy of the Christ flowing to us during this Christmastide.
