I know we have been delinquent in our posts, but tis the season to be busy sometimes! However, as I sit here and reflect on the past week I can honestly say that it was a blessing to resist the business and focus on my family and on the birth of our Lord and Savior! My family has been truly blessed to be surrounded by young people that love the Lord and this Sundays past youth Sunday was evident of their love and dedication. Andrew and Tyler did a fabulous job during praise and worship. As I looked down from the pulpit at my own young children I am reminded why I love working with youth. Their love for Christ is something they wear all day long everywhere they go - boy do we adults have a lot to learn!
So as the holidays wind down and we enter a new year please remember that it is not the resolutions we make for ourselves that will matter in the new year but the resolutions we make for Christ. I resolve to have more of Christ in me this year and to hold on to the boldness of our youth! I resolve to go forth and tell the good news to those that I meet and I resolve to lead young people and disciple them into the Great Commission. Hold me to it, hold me accountable- it is the dedication of each of us to the other that will make our resolutions stick. Pray for us as we pray for you and let us make this New Year one that will have an impact on God's Kingdom! I am excited about what is to come! New opportunities, new open doors, new ways to magnify Christ....
