Daily readings for Sunday, Dec. 25, to Saturday, Dec. 31, 2016
While I was studying for my degree in theology, a professor told us: "The secret to joy is waiting." I had never considered waiting as criteria for joy. I had always thought of joy as something experienced in the moment at some event or in a person or thing. But as he expounded on this concept, I was reminded of my grandmother and finally understood the connection between joy and waiting.
