Welcome to 2022!
We’ve had a bit of a bumpy ride as we welcome the new year. The Omicron variant is quickly making its way through the South Australian community and people are finding it pretty unnerving. Someone wrote to me to say they were finding it hard to live out Paul’s admonition to ‘give thanks in all circumstances’ (1 Thes 5:18). I concurred.
Yet…I also find myself humming Auld Lang Syne and remembering the bright moments of this past year (yes - even in another Covid year there were plenty of bright moments). Paul was talking about giving thanks to God in all circumstances, not about all circumstances.
May the New Year bring you many bright moments.
