Blessings to you all on this day before New Year’s Eve day. As we look to a New Year filled with things expected and things unexpected I would like to share with you two “items” of focus in preparation not only for the upcoming year but in preparation for this upcoming Sunday.
The first is a prayer that is included in the Pastor’s portion of our Sunday School curriculum and I thought it might be a good one to share.
“Prepare us O God, to welcome the events and people that mark turning points in our lives. Stir our imaginations to honor the dreams that send us in new directions. Grant us courage to follow the signs that lead to another road. Amen”
The second is to encourage you to take a few minutes and “Google” The song “Pilgrim” by Enya and listen to it on YouTube.
The prayer and the song – speak to a New Year but also to the scripture passage for Sunday – Matthew 2:1-12 – the story of the Magi (Pilgrims on a journey).
We will celebrate Communion. The choir will be back and Sunday School will restart.
Have a blessed and safe New Year – travel well and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday
