Another Advent task: orientation.  Or, perhaps more likely, re-orientation.  

Stop, take stock, find our pole star - our celestial pole - and turn toward it again.  And in the turning, being amazed that it is always there, steady, waiting for us to see and connect.  

Our vision during Advent is often focused on getting to Christmas.  Let us lift our eyes to the heavens (from whence our help will come) and realign ourselves again with our celestial pole.
