To hear Andy Williams tell it, right now is the most wonderful time of year. It is also the most frantic and maddening time of year. We've commenced our shopping, decorating, and planning for the "best Christmas ever."

Church leaders aren't exempt from the frenetic pace by any means, because we've had Advent on our brains for some time already.
