New Year thoughts from Rev. Helen Kirk

As we end one year and begin another we reflect on the events of the previous 12 months and then look forward to what is to come. As Methodists we have another dimension, for every New Year we remake our covenant with God. This very Methodist practice reminds us of who we are — a people who are known, loved and saved by the grace of God. It also challenges us as to who we will be: compassionate, just, generous, transformative followers of Christ seeking to live not for ourselves but for God and for others. Maybe in a world that seems uncertain, where many of the loudest narratives are divisive and acrimonious our heritage enables us to offer a different story: one of inclusive community, courageous compassion and selfless service all enabled by a loving and faithful God in whom we can trust for all that is past and all that is to come.
