Friday, January 3, 2020

As you look forward to this new year, think of each day as a door through which you must pass but through which you will never return. Will you blindly barge through those 365 doors, overwhelmed by the massive load of responsibilities which you feel obligated to carry? Will the doors represent the grinding routine of daily life, reducing existence to machine-like repetition? Or, will you see a connection between each one of those doors uniting what might at first glance seem to be random experiences into an exquisite mosaic of human life?

Will there be any kind of sign or message on the doors as you approach them day after day? Will they have the words, “Same old, same old”, “Fear”, “Uncertainty” painted on them? Or will your doors of 2020 have the engraved message, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain”?

Every day is a fresh start for those who follow Jesus Christ, but the first days of the year are an especially appropriate time to focus on this new beginning. It is an opportunity to get first things first as we embark on one more chapter of our lives. Join us for one of our worship services this weekend. Together let’s enter 2020 with our hearts and minds fixed on what matters.

Saturday evening worship: 6:00 pm
