And so we begin a new year. The problem is that many of us haven’t completed last year – projects not finished; didn’t visit those elderly; letters unwritten and now we have entered 2015 with no assurance of what this year will be like. We have entered the UNKNOWN. Well, yes and no. What we do know is that God’s love for us never fails; that God’s graces are new every day and every year and will always be sufficient to get us through whatever we manage to get into. God is forgiving; God really doesn’t care that we didn’t finish cleaning those storage areas but God does care that we treat all people with gentleness and kindness. The philosopher Joseph Campbell writes: “When you follow your bliss, doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors and where there wouldn’t be a door for anyone else.” Happy 2015
