Happy New Year!

May this be, for you, for all of us, a year of joy and progress, of consideration and choice, of love and freedom.

The Advent Word process brought the brothers of SSJE into my awareness. This morning, Brother Almquist shared this:

Some days I think our best prayer, our best plea, our best praise is simply to use the name that God has finally shared with us: Jesus, which literally means, “Yahweh saves.” You have Jesus’ name, Jesus who is intent on saving you from whatever it is that just kills you.
-Br. Curtis Almquist

I'll ponder this a while. It's certainly a good way to start a new year, in Jesus name.
