I am so grateful to be celebrating New Year’s 2012 as one who knows the God of Hope. We have 80 church members, mostly from our Singles Ministry and a few married supporters, excitedly talking about tonight’s New Year’s Eve Gala aboard the Waterways Emerald Star. We are excited because we know how lucky we are to have God and each other in this short life. We want to honor the passing of another year, 2011, with all of its surprises, blessing and disappointments and dream of what may come in the new year, 2012.
Carol and I feel blessed to be a part of the leadership team of a vibrant singles ministry (despite our married status). Jared, Chelsea, Charles and Kari along with all the Single Bible Talk Leaders are the real heroes to our growing diverse group of just over 100 singles.
We all look forward with eagerness to the possibilities of 2012. I’m not sure what God’s will will be for you as you come to each fork in the road that will come your way. I do know that it is always His will for us to be happy, praying and grateful. We serve a great God and Father who loves us.
I Thessalonians 5:16-19 Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not put out the Spirit’s fire…
