Advent Reflections on Tear Stained Joy

I’ve been encouraged to post my recent series “Making Your Way in the World Today” as an Advent reflection. While that wasn’t my original intent in writing those posts, it makes good sense to me. And when you have multiple people encourage the same thing, you should listen. I’m also including an audio file of my recent radio interview where we talked about these posts.┬áSo, if you’re looking for something to spend a few minutes with this weekend as you prepare to celebrate, I humbly offer some thoughts that I pray might be a source of encouragement.

Merry Christmas!

Sincerely Yours,
