It's another new year, and our county's spiritual leaders are busy implementing goals to move their churches forward.
We have just celebrated one of the most sacred times on the Christian calendar - the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
Another new year has come.
The new year has begun and it is a great time to change your life for the better. The New Year's resolutions may not have lasted very long or may soon be only a memory. The best way to have a great year and life is to put God in your life, in the proper place.
"For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief." - Proverbs 24:16
Have you ever wished you could go back and do things differently? Have you ever wished that you could go back in time and make different decisions that took you to places that you would rather not be?
You can admit it. At the end of the day, when you see all of the wrapping paper on the floor, and all of the gifts have been opened (and some are already broken), you have at some point thought or said, "Is that all?"
As this year winds to an end, it is gives each person time to look back not only on the past year but their entire lives. To the young, it seems that life will last forever, but to those who are older, the fact that life will not last forever becomes more apparent with each passing year. In fact the years seem to be rushing by, heading to eternity.
During this season, I'd like to encourage each of us to find Christ in Christmas.
The celebration continues 151 years later.
This time of year, Christians celebrate the coming to Earth of a savior - Jesus Christ, our Lord.
We are only a few days away from Christmas Day. I have to admit a couple of things to you. I love the Christmas season, and everything about it. Even as I think about the empty chairs and dinner table, and still am enamored by the lights, trees, decorations, music and pageantry of it all.
What gift are you looking for this year? Which one would be the greatest ever? Would it be a new car, a house or maybe a trip to some exotic place?
Yes, it's that time again, when people are running over each other to get a gift for a friend or love one.
I recently watched the classic Christmas movie, "Miracle on 34th Street." At the end of the movie, there was a campaign to get support for believing in Santa Claus.
God gives each of us this day to use however we choose. Of course, he wants us to make the best of it.
