When Waters Rise

Painting and Advent Poem

Howling wind
howling beasts
the night is dark
the moon is on the snow
the trees gesticulate, sway, moan
we are all miles from home
inside the wildness
waiting, the stillness
peace on earth
on the howling, the darkness, the swaying, the moaning,

You just read something for free.

But it didn’t appear out of thin air. Writers, editors and designers at Christian Courier worked behind the scenes to bring hope-filled, faith-based journalism to you.

As an independent publication, we simply cannot produce award-winning, Christ-centred material without support from readers like you. And we are truly grateful for any amount you can give!

CC is a registered charity, which is good news for you! Every contribution ($10+) is tax-deductible.
