Happy New Year

Yes, it’s New Years Day in our church calendar, and time for our New Year’s resolution. For Christians, there really is just one ultimate resolution, and that is to live more authentically the life of Christ.
Today’s gospel records Jesus referring to terrifying earthen and cosmic destruction. But what of our interior cataclysms? The terror of sacrificing our ignoring Jesus and Bible, of overcoming drinking, overpowering others, or our own hostilities! Imagine substituting my worst fault with a resolution to explore Christ in depth and live his response. Surely, that would be the best news for 2019. We could enliven that amazing exclamation of Jesus; “Heaven and earth will pass away, but not my words”. We wish you the happiest of new years.
