A New Year

For 2010 we wish a happier, healthier, richer experience of this life for everyone we know – and for everyone we don’t know.  For all of you.

On this first weekend of the new year, we offer the following verses, taken from the poem “Ring Out Wild Bells” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.  The text of the full poem can be found on Wikipedia.

“Ring out false pride in place and blood,

The civic slander and the spite;

Ring in the love of truth and right,

Ring in the common love of good.

*                           *                           *

Ring in the valiant man and free,

The larger heart, the kindlier hand;

Ring out the darkness of the land,

Ring in the Christ that is to be.”

Amen
