Hope for 2021
All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. John 1:3-5
Happy New Year! As we begin a new year, we remain in a season of challenges related to the Covid-19 pandemic. We pray for health and safety. We have hope that the vaccine will prevent the spread and that we can return to some sort of normal.
At Christmas, we are reminded that God sent Jesus to us as the greatest gift. Jesus came into the world to shine light into the darkness and to bring hope to a world that so desperately needs it. In these weeks following Christmas day, we continue to dwell in the joy that God chose to come to earth in the form of a babe to dwell with us and live among us.
God calls us to be the light. We are to shine the light of Christ to all the world so that they may have faith and hope for a world of blessing and of God’s provision. We are in need of Jesus. We are in need of God to guide us and sustain us. In this season of challenge, we lean on our God and we trust in him for the future. We seek to be faithful in all that we are and all that we do.
I pray that 2021 will be a year of blessings for each of you and for our Larison’s Corner church family. We are blessed to worship inside a newly renovated and beautiful church building. We await the day when all are able to worship inside safely, but until then we offer worship through FaceBookLive and through recorded services on our YouTube channel. We hope you will join us in worship to celebrate the gift of Christ and the hope that he brings.
In Christ, Pastor Courtney
