Every year I set out to follow the 12 days of Christmas — Christmas Day through Epiphany — with a daily meditative writing exercise. This year I’ll post them here. This is one way I observe the Christmas holiday among others. I set a daily word goal. This year I’ll begin with this 100 word introduction and follow with daily entries of 300 words.
I’m also going to use this as a chance to work out ideas about the book of Jonah and vocation, volition, knowledge, and faith. As i consider the upcoming year, these are heavy on my mind.
