Need a break to collect your thoughts and rest your soul?

I just arranged this sweet little nativity scene next to my desk in anticipation of Prepare Your Heart and Home for a Great Christmas. Please join me tonight at 8:30 p.m. central as I feature the beautiful music of Peter Mayer, the folk singer from Minnesota. Pete’s music captures the longing we feel this time of year, our Advent spent waiting in hope and trust that the promises of Christmas will be fulfilled. Visit Pete's site to get the lyrics to "Stables", the song we'll reflect on during the show. You may want to have them handy as you listen. "Stables" is the first song on his CD, Midwinter.

Check out this great Advent reflective practice: Advent Photo-a-Day.

Today, the church celebrates one of Mary’s feast days, so we’ll ponder her wonderful heart and waiting spirit as we reflect on the manger in Bethlehem, and the one in our hearts.

Looking forward to tonight!
