Weekend Reading

Happy Second Sunday in Advent!

I cannot believe the first week in December is almost over! Sorry for the delay in this week's installment of "Weekend Reading." I got distracted by a wonderful skype call with Grace and enthusiastically delving into new packages on Friday night. Then, a successful but exhausting half-day trip to the market with my neighbor and a fun dinner with coworkers on Saturday. Today, Sunday, I finally have time to just relax, do menial tasks such as laundry and cleaning, and catch up on YASCers' blogs!

Also, I have to put a plug in for Young Adult Service Corps! The deadline for next year's program is quickly approaching, January 4, 2014! If you know anyone from 21 to 30 years old who would love to challenge themselves by serving God in the wider Anglican Communion for one year, please pass along the information. It's an amazing experience. Find out more here!
