There is a time for everything under heaven…. God is making all things new… O God, how majestic is your name… Let these scriptures seep into your very being. Know that God is making YOU new. Know that there is a time for everything. Know that God is with us always, to be praised always. Both in 2022 and in 2023.
Wonder … This week, instead of usual resolutions, consider adopting a new prayer practice or spiritual disciple for the coming year. Maybe it’s 2 minutes of silence a day or writing a psalm a day or committing to look at the stars each night. Whatever it is, make sure it’s not too long or unmanageable. And trust that God will work through whatever you decide!
Pray…When the carols have been stilled, When the star-topped tree is taken down, When family and friends are gone home, When we are back to our schedules The work of Christmas begins: To welcome the refugee, To heal a broken planet, To feed the hungry, To build bridges of trust, not walls of fear, To share our gifts, To seek justice and peace for all people, To bring Christ’s light to the world.
