We make a big deal over a new year. In reality, it’s just a new day. We have to change, before the year can matter.
I know that the central theme of Christianity is the Resurrection, but I am equally impressed with the Incarnation. That God would choose to become one of us and join our “club” is one heck of a celebrity endorsement for the human race.
I do take the first two words of the Lord’s Prayer very seriously, “Our father.”
Happy new year! (The beginning of Advent marks a new liturgical year.)
Happy liturgical New Year!
