December 2020 Magazine

This December, as we celebrate a more solitary season of Advent, we’re making a case for rest. Rachel Twigg Boyce kicks off the issue with an expression of her love for Advent, in all its countercultural splendor, and ultimately makes a plea for peace and compassion over obsessive productivity. Mary Holmen encourages us to cultivate a spirit of restfulness and, perhaps, take up a devotional practice. David Labdon reminds us that true rest is found when we put our trust in God. In the Parish News, Sandi Meilitz offers an exciting update on the West Broadway Commons Project; and, in via media, Ryan Turnbull graces us with a follow-up essay to ‘The Silent Witness of Evergreens’ from June 2020’s issue.
