Awhile back, some friends of ours circulated a little prayer that had the ring of a New Yearâ€™s Resolution to it:
So far today, Iâ€™ve done all right. I havenâ€™t gossiped, lost my temper, been greedy or grumpy, been nasty selfish or overindulgent. Iâ€™m very thankful for that. But in a few minutes, God, Iâ€™m going to get out of bed. And from then on, Iâ€™m probably going to need a lot more help. Amen.
Your Church Council has some New Yearâ€™s Resolutions for you to prayerfully consider, in the form of goals and visions for the church, which weâ€™d like to share (among other things set forth in the official meeting notice found elsewhere in this Tempo) with you at the annual January Congregational Meeting, as is our mandate under the church constitution. Please join us as we set a course for the coming year. Happy New Year and Godâ€™s peace to you and your family in 2005! â€”Gary Bague
