The Flash! - December 19, 2013

December 19, 2013 The manger is not a fishbowl.  It is not given so that we might sit safely and comfortably on the outside looking in.  On Christmas Eve we are called not to be spectators; we are called to be participants.  We celebrate the nativity each year so that we might take part in […]
