2009 - and counting!

I said to the man
who stood at the gate of the year,
'Give me a light that I may tread safely
into the unknown.'
And he replied ,
'Go out into the darkness
and put your hand into the hand of God.
That shall be to you
better than light
and safer than a known way !'
So I went forth
and finding the Hand of God,
trod gladly into the night .
And he led me towards the hills
and the breaking of day in the lone East.

Minnie Louise Harkins 1875-1957

Whatever 2009 holds,
whatever struggles we will face,
whatever joys we will encounter,
whatever people come our way,
whatever work needs doing,
wherever we go,
wherever life may take us

we know that God will be with us
as long as we choose not to let go of his hand.

Let's face the adventure of a New Year determined to Know Jesus better,
to Show Jesus through our love for one another and our community
and to Share Jesus with everyone that we may meet.
