Welcoming the New

We caHappy New Yearll January 1st "New Year's Day." Why?

Because it is the first calendar day of the year, of course. 

But does the calendar make it fully new, or can we look for more than just a paper measuring time and marking dates?

 Aware of the gift of time and the invitation to the aliveness God gives us, we remember the words: "See, I am doing something new! Now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?" (Isaiah 43:19)

What is the aliveness and new thing to which we are called in 2021?

Led by Holy Light

Draw me to you, O Jesus,Nighttime branches with star
as the Magi were drawn.
Give me a glimpse—
perhaps not of a star—
but of holy light,
that I may be faithful,
that I may continue
to gaze and be led,
though all around would
draw my eyes away.
May I walk more and more
in your light,
even when the darkness
that tries to infect my spirit
would turn my heart from you.
Grant that I may persevere
as you draw me toward you
and in you.

 

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
(John 1:5 )
