Winter Solstice| Symbols of Reflection
Whether we are Christian or not, this Christmas season brings up reflection for most of us. As I reflect on the longest night of the year (also known as Winter Solstice), feelings about the importance of Light come up for me. Strange how light becomes one of the winter solstice symbols. This is no doubt influenced by my twenty years spent in Canada’s north where there is almost total darkness at this time of year and we long for the longest day of the year in June.
