Spiritually SpeakingDear Savior, haste! Come, come toearth.Dispel the night and show your face,and bid us hail the dawn of grace.O come, divine Messiah; the world insilence waits the daywhen hope shall sing its triumph andsadness flee away.~ Abbé Simon Joseph Pelligrin; tr. by Sr.Mary of St. PhilipSuch is the hope and aspiration that trulymarks the Advent and Christmas seasons;that a savior would come and scatter thedarkness and bring in the ‘dawn of grace.’Other religions share in this hope, as seenin this excerpt from Hindu liturgy: “Comedown to our world…Cast your glanceupon us and pour out your blessings on allcreatures, for it is time to be gracious towardus, from your throne in your heavenly world.”The great Hebrew prophets and Psalmistslonged for that day. Isaiah fervently prayedto God: “O that you would rend the heavensand come down…to make your nameknown…and cause the nations to quakebefore you!” (Isaiah 64:1,2)…“Hear us, OShepherd of Israel…awaken your might;come and save us…look down from heavenand see!” (Psalm 80). Christmas carols andcreeds lend their poetry speaking of “angelsbending near the earth” and “the hopesand fears of all the years are met in thee(Bethlehem) tonight.” The coming of theChrist Child is a convergence of heaven andearth. The Divine condescends to Humanity.“The Word becomes flesh and dwells amongus.” God has become one of us, taking onhuman flesh, establishing the dignity ofhuman nature, to intervene in the affairs of14 ong>Outong> on the Coast Magazine Issue #092mankind; bringing the gift of redemption.“Glory to God in the highest, andon earth peace, good will towardshumanity.”(Luke 2:14) The angelic proclamation,announcing Christ’s birthBecause, truth be told, we need a savior.Throughout history mankind has achievedgreat things; invented technology to soarthe skies, communicate instantly withother side of the globe; created advancedcivilizations; and yet we still struggle withthe basic problem since the beginningof it all…an inability to see each other asGod’s image. If we respected each other asGod’s image, we would not live in a worldof crime, calamity, and corruption. This isso obvious to the one who can perceivewithout bias. The present global economiccrisis due to corporate greed, the chasmbetween rich and poor, the bullying of gayteenagers (which has resulted in a waveof recent suicides), partisan politics, ethnicand sexual prejudices, religious extremists,threats of terrorism, petty arguments aboutwhether a nativity scene can be displayedin the public square (this is the origin of theChristmas holiday—dah!) Should I go on?Humanity has had and continues to have asad history of treating each other badly.The recent attack by extremists on an Iraqichurch in Baghdad (October 31) whileservices were being conducted massacredat 55 people, wounding 77, and mosthorrific— left two priests beheaded onthe altar.

HOROSCOPES continued from page SPIRIT SPEAK continued from page 14new chapter is in between December 30 th toJanuary 15 th . So until then, use the intensity ofthe time to enjoy the tradition of the season.Aquarius January 23 – February 22 Anadventure is in store for you this month! Thisis a good time to socialize or take a vacation,just be patient with delays. Don’t sweat thesmall stuff and let this Mercury retrogradeslows your enthusiasm you have the abilityto shine in the darkest of nights and make allaround you bask in the holiday spirit. Rely onyour earth sign friends to restore the passionand clarify misunderstanding with others.Pisces February 23 – March 22 Preparefor a wild and crazy ride as destiny goes fullthrottle for you this month. There’s no needfor you to react, difficult choices will resolvethemselves. Your focus should be on yourlong term financial goals. Make a budget forthe holidays before the 5 th and stick to it oryou may find yourself over indulging. Use theMercury retrograde to research practical waysto achieve your financial goals. But most ofall enjoy the beautiful sounds of the holidaysongs.For those who want to know: Since Ifinished with the Planets, we will move ontothe signs this month. Even though Capricornis not the first sign of the zodiac, I am startingwith it because of the impact it has right now.Capricorn is an earth sign. It rules Saturn, ourteacher or time keeper. The key word I usefor it is Honor. I descried it as a steam roller.They are a large mass of force that movesslowly, especially when changing directions. Iftheir energy shifts too quickly, they will tumbleover. Their symbol is the mountain goat. Thekey phase is “ I use “. They can appear tobe extremely cold, but there is a reason forthat. Without feeling the emotional toll it takesto climb a mountain they can focus on thebeauty the mountain provides. Right now,Pluto is having a train of planets pass over itin Capricorn. This change will lead all of us tosee the beauty in the journey and not in thestruggle to get there. All will be right in its owncosmic time all we must do is put one foot infront of the other.homeland due to persecution and murder. Inthe nation of Israel, the ancient hatreds andstruggles continue with Arab and Jew. Othercountries we could mention are experiencingatrocities—unjustly and unfairly. Where is thepeace the ‘prince of peace’ brought to earth?We have the capacity to destroy ourselveswith atomic and biological weapons, bringingthe human race to extinction. Is this what it’sall about? Warmongers, swindlers, cheaters,murderers, and more? Where is God? Godis watching in horror as we live out the gift offreewill and choice.O Wisdom, holy Word of God, yourule all creation with power and trueconcern.Come to teach us the way of salvation.~ from the Great O AntiphonsThe message of Christmas is not onlyone of peace and goodwill. It is one ofsalvation—whereby we can be changedand transformed into better people and intoa more just and tolerant society. That’s thegood news and message of Jesus and manyother spiritual leaders. Jesus is not onlya love-gift, but a gift of love to share. ThisChristmas season, freely give and showkindness to others and even strangers,and you will know the meaning of ‘greetingthe divine’ in all of us; you will look into ababy’s face and see God. God’s image iseverywhere! Let us re-dedicate ourselves tothe way of peace and the way of peace willset and order things right. May the peaceof this holy season embrace our world; andmay our faith embrace the One whose birthangels sing! Let us live in harmony andproclaim to the world God’s jubilee of justiceand liberation; and may God’s blessing beupon us now and forever. Amen.

The 1994 film “Trevor,” in whicha high school student attempts suicide afterrealizing he’s gay, inspired the project. In the film,Trevor, the main character, faces prejudice fromhis homophobic parents and friends.Max, who last month returned from Trevor Projectleadership training in Los Angeles, said he’sconcerned about others in the gay communitywho could be rejected and ridiculed as a result oftheir sexual orientation.His concern also comes in the wake of news ofsuicides related to anti-gay bullying in California,Rhode Island and Texas.Max, a member of the Junior Leadership ManateeProgram, Southeast High’s Technology StudentAssociation and National Honor Society, said heknows classmates who have told their parentsand were kicked out of the house. So he plans tofacilitate workshops for teachers and students tohopefully increase awareness in middle and highschools and teach others how to safely intervenewith friends or classmates who express suicidalthoughts.“I want to teach them about the power of theword, how to spot the warnings signs and tellthem what they can do to help others,” he said.Not only does he plan to bring the Trevor Projectto Manatee schools, he’s pushing to start a GayStraight Alliance, a club which promotes unity andunderstanding.Pinellas County schools have 16 such groupsand Sarasota has one club at Booker High.“We are very excited for Max to create a saferspace on his campus and in his community,” saidLaura McGinnis, Trevor Project communicationsdirector. “Part of the reason why gay youthsometimes feel so isolated is because theyhave no community; they feel like no one elseis like them. There’s no better way to createthat community than by having it led by a youngperson.”Southeast, an International Baccalaureate schoolon 37th Avenue East in Bradenton, has a diversepopulation of students from all socioeconomicbackgrounds.Max’s mom, Patricia Staebler, stands behind herson’s efforts.“I could not be any more proud knowing my sonwill contribute to saving young lives,” said hismother, who is past-chair of Junior LeadershipManatee.“We’re very proud of Max in showing such greatleadership in trying to stop all forms of bullying,”said schools Superintendent Tim McGonegal.Blake Hanes, a Braden River High Schoolalumnus, said he’s hopeful the club will get startedbut doesn’t expect it to happen any time soon.“It will happen but will take a lot of effort,” saidHanes, a freshman at State College of Florida,who was teased when he came out in middleschool. “When the bullying started, I talked to theprincipal of my school at the time, I really thinkthey just didn’t know what to do. Didn’t have muchexperience with it. So I think it’s an incredible ideaand I’m really proud of Max for doing that.”WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Gay & Lesbian VictoryFund announced that more openly lesbian, gay,bisexual and transgender (LGBT) candidateswon election to public office in the U.S. in 2010than in any year in America’s history. At least106 of the group’s record-breaking 164 endorsedcandidates were winners as of Wednesdaymorning, including Providence, R.I., Mayor DavidCicilline, who will become the fourth openly gayMember of Congress when the House convenesin January.Monthly horoscopes by Jacqueline.
