Making Room for God in the New Year

January 11, 2017

Dear friends,

It is time for our next series, and I am really excited about the one I’ve got planned for January and February!   It’s called, Making Room for God in the New Year.

I don’t know about you but for the last two weeks I’ve been readying my calendar for 2017, making goals and resolutions, and beginning anew. Maybe this is something similar to what mode you are in right now—preparing, looking ahead, planning, and refining.

A new year provides us with a fresh start and a chance to reset our thinking about what’s to come this year. As we go through this annual process in the new year, are we allowing God to be part of it? Is there room for God?

That’s what this series is about, taking a look at how we can bring God into all aspects of our lives and not just some of them.  It’s moving God from being displayed nicely on the shelf and bringing God into the heart of our homes and into the center of our lives.
Over the next five weeks, you will receive a weekly email that will include an opening reflection, suggested exercises, reflection questions, and additional resources.  The week’s themes are:

If you are new to our community, welcome, and please join us for this series by subscribing here!  For those of you already on my mailing list, you are all set.

I look forward to walking with you, new friends or old, over the next five weeks!
