Sorry… I’ve been digging myself a pretty big hole work-wise recently. So, I’ve let the Advent reflections go undone for the last couple of days. It kills me that I wasn’t able to get them done, yet in the grand scheme of things, c’est la vie, as they say in France. I was reminded though of Derek Penwell’s lovely essay, “Embracing Failure,” which we posted here a few weeks ago, and which is more than pertinent. If you haven’t read it yet, do so now; it is well your time.Tomorrow, we’ll be back on track with a new reflection and then we’ll have new reflections from Kyle Mobley and Kimberly Roth on Friday and Saturday respectively.
