Today's guest post comes from Alison, who is filling in for Donna this month: There is a strong part of me that likes making decisions based on the best foreseeable outcome.

Ah, what a wonderful time of year. The election is over, the turkey is pardoned, and the jingle hop has begun. With so much going on this season, I elected to redo a beloved Christmas lullaby. To help us fix our eyes on the Reason for the season (yup, I went there), here's Away in a Manger Reborn.
Living a shared life together in Body Life takes a willingness to be intentional.

You may not think of yourself as a person who is easily offended, but in body life, you will soon realize just how easily offended you can get.
Bridget, Carrie, Andrew, and R.C. sat down to discuss and address the public reactions from saints, holy ones, called-outs ones to the recent presidential election in the United States. The four discuss our true reality and identity in Christ and exhort the Church to turn back to Her Lord, Her King, Jesus Christ.
