It's eleven o'clock on New Year's Eve, a magical time. We put away one set of calendars and start following the new ones. I joined with other worshipers at our New Year's Eve service earlier this evening. It's a magical time and a holy time. It's not a holy day in and of itself, yet it is fitting that we gather in the presence of the God who loves us and gave himself for us to look back and look forward. We thank God for his faithfulness in the year gone by even as we grieve with those who grieve and rejoice with those who rejoice.

I wrote a bunch of stuff in my journal yesterday about things I want to focus on in 2016. I don't do New Year's resolutions as such, but again, it is a natural time to reassess where you have been and where you are headed. I'll have more to write about that later.

For now, a blessed New Year to one and all. Enjoy the magic of the season.

See you in 2016.

Blessings,
Steve

Thanks, Bob. The chalk drawing was done by one of our members during the Christmas program.
