When we asked Erin Paxton to share at last week’s Grove, we didn’t know that the word “rejoice” was something so meaningful to her. We also had no idea that she would so beautifully weave the idea of birth into her story. She didn’t know that “Birth” was our theme this week.
She’s already set the week up for us. With the deep imagery of birth. That birth is the pain and mess that precedes the joy. That birth is new life. That perhaps there is something stirring in you waiting for the courage to be birthed.
So let the holiness of birth settle over you this week, this Christmas season. Bring your thoughts, your words, your art to The Grove.
And rejoice with us over the BIRTH of Ashley Felder’s new baby girl! Naomi Elizabeth born beautiful and healthy this past week. Congratulations, Felders!
