BE the Church

We are just days from Christmas and I watched one of our favorite movies, "The Nativity Story," with my family last night. It has become a yearly tradition, and every year I cry in the moment that Jesus emerges from Mary's womb while light from Heaven fills the cave. Joseph's eyes nearly pop out of... Continue Reading →

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
