  • Christmas spirit can be a great holiday gift

    I have to admit, I’ve had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year.

    Typically I am that annoying person who starts playing Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving, while I put up the tree and decorate the house. Usually, I’ve started Christmas shopping in October and would be pretty much done before Dec. 1. By now my coworkers and friends would be tired of the baked goods and yummy snacks I would have inundated them with on a daily basis.

    But this year is not typical for a number of reasons.

  • Hope for the Future

    Someone pointed out that we live in two worlds – the world that is and the world we want it to be. Faith takes hold of the world that is and makes it what we want it to be. Faith takes the possible and makes it real. It was the great William James who said, “As the essence of courage is to stake one’s life on a possibility, so the essence of faith is to believe that the possibility exists.” By believing that a better tomorrow is possible, we have the courage to give our best to the creating of that tomorrow.
