I'm a Guest Contributor @ Internet Cafe Devotions Tuesday:

Advent Lost: A Christmas Parable

She slipped quietly into the back pew after the service started. The congregation’s song washed over her, calming her slightly, as she looked around the modest sanctuary through the veil of her hair.

Thank you so much for this post. Although I try very hard not to hinder the Spirit,I found myself just sitting there wondering how many times I had kept someone from being obedient.
Blessings....

I really enjoyed this post. It spoke to me in a fresh way. Thank you for your powerful story...one I'm embarrassed to say I have probably been a part of (and not in a good way!)
