NEW—New Year, New Hope, New Life, New Beginnings
As 2018 dawns I pray. I pray that our faith will deepen. I pray we will find new and exciting ways to live out our faith. I am looking forward to our Mission Pathways planning process and hopeful that we will find depth and breadth in ministry that we have not known before.
I pray for you. I pray that in your life you will know the peace that the Christ child brings. As we gather around the manger and allow this Holy Child to touch our hearts, I pray that we learn how to love as he loves.
Such a simple gift, such a wondrous gift, this child into our lives. Let us receive this amazing gift of unending love and for our New Year's Resolution let us vow once again to share that love with our aching world.
I think of that Christmas glow when our candles are lit on Christmas Eve. Your faces literally shine with that glow. Dearest Lord Jesus, holy child, let that glow shine in and through us as we enter this new year.
This past year has been the hardest of my life. You have walked with me and lifted me up with your love. You have been there in countless ways to help me and in you I have seen God's love made manifest. There are no words to express my gratitude to you for your kindness and love. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
"Behold I make all things new"... I hold fast to the New Life we are promised and I look with anticipation to this new day and this new year. I love you and give thanks to God for the incredible privilege of serving as your minister.
