Week 1 is all about PREPARATION. How can we prepare room for Christ in our hearts, in our calendars, in our homes?
In Arlene's message today from Luke 2, we consider Mary and her many inconvenient moves. You know about her famous trip to Bethlehem to be counted in the census, but that's not the only time she had to travel under hard circumstances. No matter what your circumstance today, God can make a place of beauty and purpose. As you listen to today's podcast, you might just see yourself in Mary's story.
