A Season of Sacrifice
As we approach the season of Lent, I’ve been thinking about what it would mean to let go of or sacrifice something small for a season. It’s not always about the huge declarations we make. Sometimes a small thing sets in motion a whole new way of living and thinking. Imagine if, for forty days […]
