From Your Minister
I gave up making New Year’s resolutions several years ago. Here’s why.
From the President
So here is my list of what we will need most in 2021.
“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet,” Aristotle opined.
Music and Choir
As the New Year begins, I am just coming back from a short sabbatical. I don’t have any notion of what this year can bring.
Religious Education by Kellie Ingram, DRE
Welcoming in a new year is like welcoming in a fresh start. The goals and resolutions and sometimes even day to day efforts to do & be more, that get swept aside, are renewed again with the passing of this planet around the sun.
Happy New Year!
This year brings renewed hope and joy to our hearts. There may be challenges, but our faith, love and friendship has strengthened our resolve and we will make it!
