Snapshots for Advent
The Charge Conferences are all completed! A brutal election process has revealed such deep divisions in our country. Now the calendar points us toward the approaching Advent season. These "snapshot" reflections are moving in my heart and soul, spirit and mind for this holy season of waiting, reflection, repentance, preparation, and anticipation:
If it is important, we will find a way to do it. If it's not, then we will make excuses. (Bishop Jonathan Holston)
