“This is a day of new beginnings, time to remember and move on, time to believe what love is bringing, laying to rest the pain that’s gone. Then let us, with the Spirit’s daring, step from the past and leave behind our disappointment, guilt, and grieving, seeking new paths, and sure to find.” (Brian Wren, 1978)

Dear Friends-

January 1st marks the beginning of the New Year and a time to think about new beginnings. Because of God’s abundant love and grace, we can forgive ourselves of past mistakes and step forward to a “new beginning.” God always loves and forgives us, and we can always start again with God, each and every day. Around the New Year I take time to look back over the past year and set some personal goals and church goals for 2018.

My life and our church life in the past year has had its high and low points. We give thanks to God for the blessings and challenges too. My goal for the church focuses on healthy and open communications and a committed Christian life as the Body of Christ, within our church community.

 

Peace, Pastor Jennifer
