How personally do you take this whole Christmas thing?
As has been the case throughout History, amongst the Disciples were many faithful women, as part of Jesus' Kingdom Mission.
Sometimes our powers seem diminished by circumstance, and by assumptions, giving others the false appearance that we can't do anything "super" within God's Kingdom Mission.... wow, will they be surprised!
True Freedom in Christ is not "do what I want" freedom, but freedom from the things that keep us from doing what God has in mind for us.
Faith doesn't magically fix things, but it can replace our worry with peace.
