158. The Reflective Pause of Winter

Out of the Ordinary 158

Out of the Ordinary Reflections:

  • This season is full of expectations but we aren't living the expectations we see on Hallmark.  We are living in real lives, needing a real Jesus in the darkness.
  • We all need a balm of hope to nourish our hearts during this season that helps us take a deep breath.
  • Winter is a pause and gives us space to reflect on where we really are, not where consumer culture is wanting us to be. Where is your heart today?
  • Lisa-Jo is reading from The Shadow Doctor by Adrian Plass.
  • Christie's is reading from: A Child in Winter: Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany with Caryll Houselander, edited by Thomas Hoffman.
