A Message from Pastor Matt: “A New Year?”

Another year begins in the world.
Another just ended.
It was the worst year ever.
It was the best. year. EVER!!!
It was the year I lost my everything.
It was the year we got married.
It was the year I never stopped being angry.
It was the year I made my own!
It was the year everything changed.
It was a lost year.
It was the year of living on the edge!
It was the year that I struggled.
It was a year that flew by!
It was a year that would. not. END.
It was the year I graduated.
It was the year I quit.
It was the year I found out who I am.
It was the year I found out the diagnosis.
It was a year that I’ll never forget.
It was a year I wish I could forget.
It was a year that felt like five.
It was a year I wish I could do over
It was the year of music!
It was the year I came out.
It was the year we fixed it.
It was a year of brokenness.
It was the year I became Mom.
It was the year I said goodbye to Dad.
It was a year of idiocy!
It was a year that set me free.
It was a GREAT year! It was… a year.

Whatever kind of year it was for you… we are here, still, and we are together.

We are God’s beloved community.

And we are called as we are every year to love each other, love people, love God.

It was a year of love.

It will be a year of love.

God loves you. You are loved. Go out and love fiercely and never forget that you are.

Happy New Year.
Pastor Matt
