For 2021 I have just one word for now, and that is hope. I hope the new year will be better. I hope that the vaccinations will get to everyone as quickly as possible and that we will be able to return to some sense of normal. I hope that our nation gets back to work and folks settle down so that we can live our lives. As Christians we are actually commanded to lead peaceful lives so that we may then have opportunities to share the Gospel without all the distractions. I hope as things get to the new normal that as a church we can pick up from where we were a year ago. I’m still looking forward to hosting a meeting with my son. I hope that we can look forward to a great VBS and other opportunities for ministry in our community.
One thing I do know, not just hope for, God is still God and 2021 is still in his hands as are all of us. So whatever your expectations are for the new year rest assured that God will work all things for good to those who love him.
