I can't believe it's already Wednesday in the first week of Advent and I haven't weighed in yet. It's a time of watching, waiting, and preparation for the coming of our Savior. Jesus followers are swimming upstream as we will be for the next several weeks. Maybe we always are, in many ways. But at … Continue reading Swimming upstream
