We served at a church in rural West Tennessee for a little shy of 10 years. That town, and specifically that church, contained some of the sweetest, most genuine people I’ve ever known.

I don’t know about you, but in the winter when it’s cold, I just want to sit by the fire and eat cozy, comforting foods. I like sweet things. I like savory things. I like it all.
