Light Into the New Year

The year ahead is never clear to us. For some, stepping into it can feel like a step into the darkness. Our hope is to tread safely through the darkness that is 2016, and to find enough light to guide us.

For those who experienced difficulty in 2015, a new year may feel frightening. However, the year may also feel light-filled and full of new promise. May it be so for all of us, and may we find the light we need.

The following poem by Minnie Louise Haskins expresses it so well. In the end, the poet invites us to place our hand in God’s hand and to walk ahead in safety. May you walk safety into 2016 with all the light you need to find your way.
