A New Year/A New Beginning

As we start the 2017 New Year, here is a prayer from today’s church bulletin that resonated with me.  Happy New Year!!  Melody

God of Time and Space, you are not bound by calendars, day timers, and watches; teach us to not be bound by them either.

God of the stars, the heavens, the planets and their orbits, you sent a star to guide the Magi on their journey to the Christ Child.  Send your star to guide us on journeys of faith.

May your word still speak to us today.  May your son still be the light in our worlds of darkness.

And just as the Magi brought gifts to the Christ Child, may we bring our gifts to the Christ Child again.

Amen.
