"This, then is our desert:
to live facing despair,
but not to consent.
To trample it down under hope in the Cross.
To wage war against despair unceasingly.
That war is our wilderness.
If we wage it courageously,
we will find Christ at our side.
If we cannot face it,
we will never find him."

Far, far worse than the ghoulishly dressed trick-or-treaters trudging the dark, damp streets, or the really quite atmospheric candlelit pumpkins on the garden walls- a decorated Christmas tree in the foyer of a local supermarket. Arrghh!
