We have just celebrated with our wider community the true reason of Christmas. It was not a story from the past but a fact that God wants to be in relationship with us, His Children today.
God’s Love invites a response from us!
New Years’ are usually noisy and we all have plenty to say about how we want to change ourselves and who we want to “be”, filled with hope and promise.
As we resolve who we want to “be” together as Churches of Christ in this State let us recall Isaiah 40:31 “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on the wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary they will walk and not be faint”. May we do this, remembering we are in relationship with our Lord from what He has done for us, and that He will guide us to be His people in this world.
This year, let us reclaim together the voice we are given through being intentional in our relationship with each other, especially with our Lord.
In 2018 may we continue to grow as a Movement of Churches in Faith, Hope and Love, sharing God’s message for all.
Happy New Year!
Conference President, Churches of Christ SA & NT
