2013 begins

One more year has come and gone, and now we stand on the brink of another, unsure of what the horizon brings.

It’s not unique at this time to talk about looking at the year behind, reflecting on events and how they’ve affected us, judging decisions we’ve made and how we’ve progressed towards meeting our life goals.  Neither is it unique to look at the year ahead, wondering what the new year brings, making new goals and resolutions, hoping for a better year than the one behind.  Though these New Year activities are not unique, there is a reason that nearly everyone participates: it just makes sense.

Happy New Year!

It’s the new year, and that means the beginning of the bible:365 project!

I am so excited to be embarking on this journey through the Word with all of you, and am looking forward to see how God transforms our lives in this year.

If you are not already on board, or haven’t yet invited your friends to participate, you’re almost out of time, as readings start the beginning of the week!

Just for clarification, I will be following the weekly readings Monday through Friday, though you can do them any five days of the week that work for you! Be sure to get the reading schedule here.

May God be preparing our hearts for the journey.
