A New Year! New Enthusiasm!
Is the beginning of the New Year a big deal? Maybe. Maybe not. Lately I don’t feel my previous compulsion to watch the music note or the ball drop, or hear the clock chime at midnight. It’s not a big deal for me this year, or last year, and maybe the year before that. But next year ... maybe by then I can work up a little enthusiasm for the midnight celebration once again.
How about your group of United Methodist Women? Do you still have enthusiasm for turning faith, hope, and love into action for women, children and youth around the world? One of the things that makes a New Year a big deal is the hope that comes with the newness of it all. We get to start all over, create new opportunities, new goals. It’s like we get another chance to improve on what we are doing, perhaps even try something new. Let’s take some time in our groups to do a little self-evaluation. Set some attainable goals for this New Year. I believe we are about to awaken a sleeping giant in the Harpeth River District. Let’s start our day singing, “Rise and shine, and give God the glory!” Are you awake yet?
I hope to see you Saturday, February 2, for the first meeting of 2019, at Coleman Memorial UMC in Lawrenceburg. Road trip! The district officers meet in the morning, then we will have a UMW update from those on the leadership team at 1:00 pm, followed by a faith-lifting message at 2:00 pm from Rev. Judy Stevenson, our new leadership strategist from the district superintendent’s office.
Bring your smile, meet some amazing women, get a little information, and be inspired. Then sing all the way home!
“Whatever you do, do it from the heart for the Lord and not for people.”
