Rev. Bonnie K. Carenen is a lifelong member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) currently serving Church World Service Indonesia in Jakarta, as an advisor for disaster relief and development issues. Growing up, Bonnie never paid attention to Advent because she was too excited for Christmas carols and the holiday gift exchange. However Advent has become her favorite season in the Christian calendar, precisely because of the time for quiet reflection on what it means to have enough.
