A joy to discover your Advent reflection and the R.S. Thomas quote after a visit to St. Michael's Church, Eglwysfach, a week ago. You may know "within listening distance of the silence we call God" is inscribed on a memorial plaque just outside the entrance.

Glad to hear from you Jane. You are far travelled this Advent. May you be blessed as another three travellers were blessed when they too brought their gifts as an offering. And no Ididn't know about the memorial plaque, thank you. If we ever are free to expand the canon, I'd like to have a few of RST's poems appended to the Psalms - Shalom the noo!

i've looked and looked and cannot find anything personal who is ruth?
i would like to know who's stuff i'm reading !

thanks again, for your lovely blog. i know it takes quite a bit of time
as what you write is very well thought out.
sincerely , mona Lee Garner (Arkansas)

Hello Mona and thank you for your kind words about the blog. I'm always encouraged when people find sense and sustenance in what is written here and read in so many other places. I can now add Arkansas to that geographical spread of friends! I think the blog referred to has either chaged its name and link, or has discontinued. I;ll check it out and fix it if I can. All good wishes from Aberdeen, Scotland.
