The women's bible study I take part in goes, every Christmas, to visit a local residential facility for recovering addicts. Last year, my first year in the Bible study, I had to work the day they went and so was unable to go. I am so thankful I made it this year. We sang some songs and shared a bit with them about the powerful God we serve. Then they got up and shared about how God has been changing them. It was incredibly moving - sometimes in my somewhat sheltered life, I forget how powerful God is. And that he came to set the prisoner free. A good thing to be reminded of this advent season.
