You Say You Want a Resolution?!

January 7, 2021

 

[QUICK REVIEW: Colleague Michael Williams wrote —

What do you resolve on the first day of a new decade? (Though many herald a new decade when the year number ends in 0, the decade actually begins with the year ending in 1.)

“Consider a different question: What would your prayers be for Christians across the world as we navigate this important transition? Let me share a few of mine.

“First, I pray that we as Christians are more determined to live out God’s commands to love God and our neighbor than to make everyone believe exactly the way we do.”

“Second, I pray that Christians include as neighbors every part of God’s creation.”]

Third, I pray that Christians would talk less and do more to respond in love to violence, poverty, hunger, homelessness, loneliness and hurt.]

“Fourth, I pray that Christians look for Christ in cultures and tradition different than their own. This practice may protect us from turning Jesus into an idol who simply mirrors ourselves.”

— I can still only add my personal Amen today. Mercy.
