New Year’s Greetings! As we begin each new year, there’s a sense of hope and potential. It’s as if we have a chance to live our months, weeks, and days over again – to find ways to do better than we did the last time each date rolled around.
As followers of Jesus, I think we’re called to live out of that kind of hopefulness all the time. We just celebrated the birth of Jesus among us. And Jesus came to show God’s love for us, to lead us in a new way toward repentance and forgiveness. Toward another chance to live good lives and to treat each other with love.
I hope you’ll come experience some of that hope with us in our worship services this upcoming Sunday. We’ll also be ordaining and installing our new officers in worship. They will be a visible sign of how God claims us and remakes us, as people fit to do holy work in the world - be there as we recognize and encourage these individuals for their service.
P.S. We’ll also have a message from our upcoming community conversation speaker, Dr. Reggie Williams. Find out more about this
