Let us reflect on the past year and look forward to the next
After a very challenging year, a number of us may be approaching the New Year with some trepidation, especially as the way ahead in 2021 does not seem particularly clear or hopeful, especially where COVID-19 is concerned.
However, as Christians, we do have hope. Jesus’ birth at Christmas reminds us that light illumines the darkness and now – at New Year’s Eve – we must look ahead, as the magi did on their journey to Bethlehem and kept their eyes fixed on the star, with trust of a better tomorrow.
Here are a few reflections which may help you to reflect on your year that’s been and put into place some good spiritual habits that will help to give real purpose to 2021, bringing Jesus to the centre, in spite of any storms that maybe swirling around you.
