Happy New Year, everyone!
Attached is the service for the first Sunday of the year, which also happens to be the 2nd Sunday of Christmas.
Given the year we just concluded, I am not making any predictions about how things are going to go! We have all learned (or perhaps re-learned) that trying to do such things is pretty pointless.
However, what I can say is that we do not face the coming year alone. The Word of God, God’s self-expression, God’s very presence, goes with us.
This promise does not make life, faith and hope easier. It does, however, make life, faith and hope possible.
May you all experience the blessings of the Word made flesh in 2021.
