What has 2020 taught you?
I appreciate the two people who sent me their reflections. I'd love to hear from more of you! I revised my plan to give you a little more time. Please reply to this email with your thoughts!

As the end of the year approaches, it's natural to become reflective and introspective. I'd like to share some of your experiences from this challenging year during the worship service on January 3, 2021.

Please reply with a short answer to one of these questions:
  • What has 2020 taught you?
  • When have you seen Christ this year?
  • How have you experienced God in the midst of this year?
