Your spiritual gifts are the way God not only takes care of you, but also takes care of the world around you. And the more you practice your spiritual gifts, the better you'll get at them. This can feel like a daunting prospect, but Bishop Carlye has some simple suggestions for how to approach this. (Time: 2:05.)

As we move from Christmastide into Epiphany, and into a new year with its hopes and challenges, Bishop Carlye suggests that we can nurture our spiritual lives by following Mary's example, when she "treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart." (Time: 4:46.)

Bishop Carlye's Christmas message

Dear Companions on the Journey,

Except for the very organized folks, I imagine most of us are in final preparation mode for Christmas celebrations. Each day I picture the people and congregations of our diocese as we move through these final days of Advent to Christmas. I see us wrapped in the magnificent light of Jesus. I will hold this picture-prayer in my spirit as we approach this holy day. I hope that you receive an abundance of Christ’s love and mercy this Christmas and share it with another.

I offer this prayer for you and your families:
