The Summer Solstice is a time of fullness, when we contemplate what we’ve achieved during the year. Our group met yesterday to do just that and to share our hopes for the year to come.
In the evening I went to the Transitional Cathedral for the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. Because of my role at Volunteering Canterbury I’d been asked to read one of the lessons, which came from the Prophet Isaiah. (My only memory of this Prophet is that he had his lips cleansed with a burning coal.)
The juxtaposition of these two rituals reminded me of the Easter Sunday in 2006 when we visited both Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge. It all goes to show that there are many roads to the theosophical Truth.
The actual summer solstice is tomorrow, and today’s forecast is for 33 degrees. Tomorrow may be longer, but I hope it’s not hotter!
Happy Solstice and Merry Christmas to all my readers.
