One of the nice things about following the Liturgical year is you get two New Years’. First the beginning of the church year with the first Sunday of Advent and then the beginning of the calendar year with January 1st. This Sunday is closest to the second New Year, the one where people make resolutions. I don’t make resolutions for the New Year very often. They are hard to keep and who needs more non-success in their life?
This year I am thinking of the year more as a journey than anything else and that leads me to ask what are we might bring along for the trip. So what will you be taking with you?
