My favorite parts of this year Christmas eve service are many…but I’d love to name some 1. The children helping to light the advent candle.

Solomon built a temple, because he knew he couldn’t contain God. Ironic as it is…. The Temple is empty, except for the 10 commandments, so that all the priest, and elders and leaders and everyone important can come into the temple for its dedication.

Sometimes I feel like we can really relate to Hunger Games. Luckily things aren’t quite as bad as during the depression, but for me student debt is a real and heavy weigh in on my life as I tot up the bills and work towards providing for my family. My friend Charlie says student debt … Continue reading
For those of you who don’t know me, I am very obsessed with Beauty and the Beast (Post about the Amazing Theology of Beauty and the Beast here) Beauty and the Beast on Broadway (yes the Disney one) has a great song about home.
