I love to read. This year I read 90 books from a variety of genres, including memoir, poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and theology. Lots of them were great, but these were some of my favorites that I highly recommend. What was the best book you read this year
Merry Christmas! It's cold and icy outside, so I know many people won't be able to join us for worship. I humbly offer this Christmas Eve sermon to anyone who might enjoy reading it. It's not the same as being in church, but hopefully it is a Word of Comfort, Joy, and Good News.
Even if you do not agree with all the assertions that Rev. Barry makes in this piece, I hope that it will give you some interesting food for thought in your own ministry setting this Advent. The section on the sacramental theology of baptism as viewed through a Marian lens is particularly interesting.
I was originally drawn to this heartwarming holiday collection because the opening story dealt with cute cuddly animals. These stories reminded me of the warmth of a Hallmark Christmas movie! @rararesources @GeraldineRyan

I wanted to lift up this book because I think that there are probably other women out there who, like me, want to improve their fitness but aren't sure where to begin. Diet and exercise have never come naturally to me, and I am grateful I found this well researched book to guide my training. This book is brimming with great information and I know I will refer to it again the next time I'm stuck in a training rut. I don't know if my next race time will improve, but I do know that I feel happier and healthier after reading this book and putting some of these ideas into practice.
fter an unexpected hiatus from writing, I'm back and pleased to share some prayers I have written. Please feel free to use these prayers in your personal devotions or in a worship setting.
