To help us all stay a little more “in time” this season, I want to offer just a few follow ups to Sunday – in these days of often overwhelming days of advent, and December, and wintertime – experiment with these ideas as ways of feeling more connected, more present, and more aligned with the invitation of this season to slow down….
