Every Breath a Birth (Meditations for Advent & Christmastide)


“Some years the sky falls harder than others.
The great go hush, good neighbors, poets, priests—
woe’s dreadful litany knows no surcease.”

(“Nativity,” Thomas Lynch, issue 110)


As we prepare for Advent and Christmastide, the staff at Image is delighted to share the publication of Every Breath a Birth: Meditations for Advent & Christmastide, a chapbook drawing from our journal’s rich archives. In this curated collection, the creative work of 20 writers and visual artists of wide-ranging backgrounds, traditions, and styles illuminate seasonal themes: stillness and pilgrimage, darkness and light, expectant hope and embracing mystery. From beloved classics to recent highlights, we hope this collection steadies your gaze in the dark and enriches your seasonal rhythms as we move together from one season to the next—a time of waiting in the dark to being surprised, once again, by in-breaking joy and world-spanning celebration.
