Advent Week Two Reflection

Join us for the second week of Advent: 
Miriam’s Relationship to the Divine

Women are not mentioned a lot in Scripture in comparison to men. Yet Miriam plays a key role in the New Testament, and it is from that collection of stories we can glean something about her relationship to the Divine (Peters, n.d.). We know that Miriam was a first century Jewish woman. As a devout Jew, she was part of the covenant between the people and the God of Israel (Johnson, 2003, p. 163). At the heart of Judaism is the Shema, the fundamental teaching of Mosaic Law, which Miriam would have made as a confession of faith: “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone! Therefore, you shall love the Lord, your God, with your whole heart, and with your whole being, and with your whole strength.”
(New American Bible, Revised Edition, 2011, Deut. 6:4-5).

by Thomas Merton

Charm with your stainlessness these winter nights,
Skies, and be perfect! Fly, vivider in the fiery dark, you quiet meteors,
And disappear.
You moon, be slow to go down,
This is your full!

The four white roads make off in silence
Towards the four parts of the starry universe.
Time falls like manna at the corners of the wintry earth.
We have become more humble than the rocks,
More wakeful than the patient hills.
