From Inside the Collar
Do you wonder what is God's will? And what is your place in it? What is God's will for you?
From time to time I've driven myself (and others- I'm sorry) to distraction praying to know God's will!
God's will for you is to "rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances". It isn't an answer, it is a path: it is a way of life, it is The way of Life. There is a joy in the journey. Stay the course. Keep moving, trusting, praying! The more we give thanks, the more we find to be thankful for! Joy will find you on the way. "Joy" isn't until the third Sunday of Advent, it is a by product, not a goal.
Rejoice, Pray, Give Thanks, always!

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It is amazing that now Christmas is practically around the corner. The holidays, especially in the cold weather, are not an easy time for the friends we serve at the Emmanuel House shelter. Many are separated from family, in some cases including their children. We try to bring warmth and cheer to them, along with all the wonderful food you so generously donate. They always express appreciation, and wish us well for the holidays. Bless you for providing a truck full of great food and hot drinks. Your caring hearts are a blessing to so many.
