It’s been a semester of challenge and change.
That’s not a bad thing. Not at all. Life is change; challenges bring growth. That’s the point of all this, really.
But we need a little peace, too. Quiet. Rest. Peace is not the purpose of life, but it is required for renewal, to recover ourselves before wandering out again to weather the winds of challenge and change.
As this semester comes to a close, as this calendar year draws nigh, as we together light our quiet Christmas candles against the overwhelming darkness of winter, I wish these things for each and every one of us: peace and respite, however brief, from the challenges of life.
