In the BeginningIn the Beginning…

In the beginning, when God created the heavens and earth… In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… The beginning of a new year, 2020. We, as humans, like new beginnings. It is as if it gives us a fresh start to launch a new purpose in life: finding a soulmate and getting married, planning a family and having a new baby, completing educational training and be hired for a new job, buying a new home, retiring from years of work, etc. The list is endless when it comes to life and the new beginnings that occur, the planned ones or the unexpected.

For the congregation, you will be facing new beginnings. As we, calendar-wise, begin a new year, let us also recognize how God continually throughout the scripture brought about new beginnings.

God said through Isaiah, “I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” (Isaiah 43:19)

Be on the lookout for what God is doing among us. Most importantly, BE a part of what God is doing among us. We all have a part to continue God’s vision for our church and the ministry we are called to do.

Love in Christ,
Pastor Veronica
