Advent Week 1: 1 December 2021

Miriam Rose Ungunmerr Baumann is Senior Australian of the Year for 2021. She has brought into common usage the term didirri which loosely translated means deep listening. More than a technique, didirri is a way of being, a disposition Miriam Rose says brings healing. 

Didirri begins, she says, by greeting each morning with the following prayer: Let tiny drops of stillness fall gently through my day. May Miriam Rose’s way and her words lead us in the Season of Advent.

In Peace,


Rev. Christine Gilbert
