Yesterday was Hallowe'en, today is All Saints' Day
The transition from yesterday into today is a liminal time -- the ancient Celts & Picts (my ancestors) believed this to be the most powerful of all liminal days of the year -- for all the historic and sociological reasons you can read about in Wikipedia link above, but all the more for me today.
This has been a year of transitions:
- From: Field-staff RN,
To: RN Manager
-- 4th January 2010
- From: Vineyard church-planting pastor,
To: Unaffiliated Jesus-follower
-- 1st September 2010
- From: Runner,
-- 10th October 2010
- From: Early Forties,
To: Middle Age
I have always loved Autumn and Winter. The long nights and cold wet days. The deep abiding rest the world moves into. All this really feeds my soul. I identify with these changes and appreciate the subtleties and vagaries of liminal times.
It turns me on to think of growing old
