Hello Everyone, E-MAIL 34
If you have had the magazine for December and read my reflection – well, I am beginning to think that God may be female. Why am I changing my mind a little to the feminine side of our God?
The time between Christ the King and Advent, when we as Christians start the process of self-examination of our beliefs and relationships again, is a week of no-mans-land.

A space, where the world seems to hold it breath in anticipation of what is to come. A space, before the time of preparation for the coming of . . . .
