Have you noticed how busy fall sometimes seems? We often forget that winter actually starts just days before Christmas, which means fall is the season of holidays - for almost all faith traditions and beliefs. As the daylight grows shorter, it also somehow just seems to make time shorter.

Just two quick notes to start this week.
