The Northern norm
forgets the south
During advent, focus on the abundant light in the south
Instead of longing for light to come in our local spot on the earth (see also: The Weaponized Binary of Light & Dark), a congregation might reflect on the abundant light that is blessing the southern hemisphere of our same planet. "We are never truly without light as the people of God," one might declare. "As winter settles in around us, we give thanks for the abundant light that brings forth spring with our neighbors to the south. May we be warmed by this same light as we welcome the Christ child into our lives this Christmas season."
During Lent and Easter, remember those whose seasons are opposite
In both a metaphorical and a literal sense, not everyone in the world - or in the room - may feel the light and energy of Christ's resurrection during the spring season. In fact, this is acknowledged in some of the existing prayer language in the ELW Easter liturgies.
It can be helpful to reference the half of the globe that is venturing toward their respective falls and winters, because it can ease the pressure for folks who may not feel as "sunny" or "Easter-y" as the predominant narrative of the season would convey. Thus, it is both inclusive and pastoral to reference the different seasonal narrative in the opposite hemisphere because it acknowledges the different reality that exists outside the assumptions of our European liturgies, and it reminds the community that we're never all-at-once shrouded in light, and that is ok.
