In the northern hemisphere today is the Winter Solstice. On the dark side it is the longest night and shortest day of the year. On the bright side it only gets sunnier from here through summer with lengths of day steadily increasing. It has been celebrated for many ages and often used for reflection of what is passed and promises for what comes next. Keep your faith and warm each other as the sun steadily returns. Happy Winter Solstice!
