Blank Pages

It’s a new year. Blank pages lie in wait for us to fill them. Fill them with good times and not so good times. With laughter and with tears. With sorry and with joy. Hopefully each page will show God’s presence and Jesus’ mercy.

Let us pray:

MY LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone. – Thomas Merton

May we head into 2015 with a desire to please God and follow Jesus in his mercy to change we, me and the world. May we welcome everything (everything) that comes our way. May we seek adventure, justice and peace. May we recognize that God is always with us.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 and 10:30 as together we begin the journey of a new year.

Grace and peace,
