Monday, December 19 (Focusing on the right trinity) — There’s the Holy Trinity and there are other trinities. Which one has my focus?

Tuesday, December 20 (Don’t be like the innkeeper) — In Bethlehem, the innkeeper said there was no room for Jesus to be born in the inn. How about the “inn” of my life?
