Battle for joy

In a world that forgot why we hang Christmas lights

The Church is the family of God. From the outside, family traditions can look like a bunch of rules. From the inside, however, these “rules” are life-giving and awesome: holidays, secret recipes, bedtime stories, pancake breakfasts, faithfulness, love. And we can bring something beautiful to the (family) table—on the web and on the ground, praying “on earth as it is in heaven.” Wanna pull up a chair? Here are some blogs, magazines, and resources to get started:

Our lamps are trimmed and burning

Our robes are white and clean;

We’ve tarried for the Bridegroom;

Oh, may we enter in?
