HAPPY NEW YEAR
How do we look forward with hope
As all the violence and disease
Present in our world continues on?
Perhaps our hope, joy, and our
Yearnings are focused elsewhere.
Now our Savior has come.
Everything is held together in him.
We have eternal life, now and forever.
Yes, bad stuff happens still.
Everywhere trouble comes.
And yet, God is working to bring good.
Rejoice! We are never alone.
