Trinity putting Christ back in Christmas with Advent

Have you noticed how Halloween is being overtaken by Christmas - displays and decorations and whatnot showing up before the end of October? With all the commercialism of the season of Christmas, and seeing everywhere you look the images of red-nosed reindeer, dancing snowmen, Grinches, and Santas, it is easy for the real reason for the season to become lost. That may be why more Christian churches and families are bringing back a celebration of Advent.

Their savage march across portions of the Middle East has captured the attention of world leaders and its citizens alike.

Remember, you are an unfinished masterpiece

As a distance runner with a mile-wide competitive streak, one thing I have learned over time is that there is always room for improvement. There is always room to run farther, faster or finish higher than I did in the last race. When I am competing against myself, my best today is never what I want to settle for tomorrow.
