Hope For The New Year

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices, for yonder breaks a new a glorious morn.”  O Holy Night (a Christmas carol)

Lord your birth reminds us that amidst the anxiety, fear, anger, and disappointment of our political life, there is hope.  We have the opportunity to change our ways, to seek truth, to offer compassion, to pursue justice, to speak with kindness and civility even where we don’t agree.  One person can shine a light into the darkness and together we create new patterns and a better future for all.   Show us your ways O Lord, teach us your paths, and strengthen us for the year ahead.

Amen
