New Year Dreams

Happy New Year!

What are your hopes and dreams for the new year?  What are you looking forward to?  What will make your heart sing this year?  We hear all about making resolutions, but we know that it’s very difficult to start making a new habit.  Perhaps we ought to instead, spend some time dreaming…now at the start of the year and regularly.

I am looking forward to welcoming author, speaker, pastor Terry Hershey back to our community of faith later this month.  Do you get Terry’s emails on Mondays?  They are a great way to start the week dreaming.  Check out his work here: http://www.terryhershey.com/community/blog/

Here’s a prayer from Terry’s last “Sabbath Moment”.  A nice prayer to begin our new year.

Dear Lord, please give me
A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;
A work to do which has real value,
Without which the world would be the poorer;
A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed;
An understanding heart;
A sense of humor;
Time for quiet, silent meditation;
A feeling of the presence of God;
The patience to wait for the coming of these things,
With the wisdom to recognize them when they come.
Amen

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9 or 10:30 as we gather to celebrate the presence of God, share friendship and thank God the gifts of the new year.

New Year Blessings,
Vikki
