The Incredible Journey
A new year, a new beginning, that is what the calendar tells us, but is it really? If we didn’t have a calendar would we be able to discern the passage from December 31st to January 1st? Truth is, only taxes, insurance and other annual obligations are affected by the changing date. The only other impact on our lives is sometimes celebrating the passing of another year.
We at St. Andrew’s are presently searching for our next pastor. We like to say we are embarking on a journey of new hope and new beginnings in a new year, but the adventure actually began sixty years ago. In 1958, a group of people came together in faith to worship God. A commitment was made to walk in the Light and grow in His word.
Travel was not always smooth. There were a few bumps in the road and an occasional detour, but with the Light of the Lord as a “lamp onto our feet” we have experienced a wonderful adventure.
Rather than saying we are about to begin a new year of hope and new beginnings, we should say we are going to continue on the journey we started many years ago.
Let’s get excited along the way and enjoy the attractions. We can observe the beauty of kindness, the majesty of God’s promise, the grace of His forgiveness and above all His love.
Only God knows what lies ahead and who He will call to be our next Pastor. If we walk faithfully in His Light, we can be assured it will be an “Incredible Journey”.
Blessings for a bright and beautiful future in Christ – Happy New Year –
