So I realize it has been a looong time since I posted last and there is much to catch up with. However, for right now I thought I would post the first of my Advent sermons of the year. It is about the competing emotions we sometimes feel when the festive aura of the season clashes with the rather difficult world we live in. the readings are Luke 2:1-7 and "Mark the Time" by Max Coots. Here's hoping your holiday season is off to a great start!
