‘Although darkness has often been associated with fear and evil, I would like to offer another face of darkness….. This darkness is not one we need protection from, but rather is a darkness we are invited to enter. It is a bit like standing before the hidden face of the divine, longing for entrance yet fully aware that we know so little about the one we call God.’ Macrina Wiederkehr
What to do in the darkness, by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre
Consent to it
but don’t wallow in it.
Know it as a place of germination
Remember the light.
Take an outstretched hand if you find one.
Exercise unused senses.
Find the path by walking it.
Wait for dawn
