Convener's Corner — January 2017

Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a joyous Christmas and were able to navigate through the extra activity during this time. We are on the doorstep of 2017and it's time to leave 2016 behind us. Many make resolutions for the New Year and many may not. Many never carry through with their resolutions. (been there).

One thought that comes to mind at this time we focus on family and friends during Christmas and what happens after it's all over? This New Year I want to focus on other people that I don't associate with that often but would like to do something for them. This can be done in several ways. After all we are to help our Brothers and Sisters right? It's not about me! I have helped others where and when I could, but I would like to do something for someone or with someone where the act could benefit more than just 2 of us. For instance start a Bible study with another Curseista or one or two people from my church and see if I can add about 3 people. Does this sound familiar? With a New Year here let's start off on the right foot and get the renewal groups going if you aren't and if you are great! Keep them going and maybe you want to set up an Ultreya. This would be a chance for you to bring your neighbor or someone else that you know for a new experience and may be a way to start off the new year on the right foot…

Blessings and Happy New Year!

God Loves you and so do I.
