Come one. Come all.
Pollyanna – Cynic – Faithful -Searcher – Disbeliever.
No matter who we are, at this time of “new year,” there is an inner yearning which boils and roils in our inner being which craves for hope, renewal, and longs for the NEW.
“Maybe this year!” Maybe the time finally has come!” Maybe…? Maybe!” “Could it possibly be in my lifetime?”
What is it for which we hope? Certainly not that all our New Year’s resolutions will be kept. We know better than that. Our outward resolutions never are kept unless we are devoted and committed to an inner change of life!
Is this the time – the year – for you? To edit the German theologian/pastor, Dietrich Bonheoffer (1906-1945), who was executed for his resistance to Hitler:
“Who will help change the world for the better? Only those who lay down all power; all honor; all reputation; all vanity; all arrogance; all individualism….
Come one. Cone all. May we be open to God’s Spirit to bring about God’s Peaceable Kingdom….here….and now.
