In the beginning …
We start the Year of 2021, The Year of New Beginnings. Our readings today in Genesis 11:1-20 and Mark 1: 1-13 are all about beginnings; the beginning of the world, the beginning of Jesus ministry and his baptism.
Chance for a new start for us all in 2021, what shall we do? Do you know I really think this is time for change, change for the better, let’s move forward to a different way of worshipping and looking after God’s world. It certainly is time we should .
Our planet is in trouble, that’s God creation we heard about in Genesis.
Our church is in trouble, that’s God’s church, not enough money, not reaching enough people.
Our neighbours are in trouble, that’s God’s people, both locally and across the world, they need our support.
So let’s make a change in our lives. As we sit back in our homes whilst we can’t go out. Take the time to think about what changes we would like to see and if we keep trying, they will be possible.
So goodbye 2020 The Year of the Parcel and Welcome 2021 The Year of New Beginnings
