God suits up for anyone who really asks
What’s on your mind these days? The primaries, Super Bowl, St. Mary’s fish fry, or upcoming Serendipity Auction? Or maybe the Hospice Valentine’s Ball on Feb. 13? For a town that is supposed to be hibernating in the off-season, we have a lot going on. I’m somewhere between putting away my Christmas decorations, having left my tree up until Candlemas — Jesus’ presentation in the temple 40 days after his birth — and...
