Teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart. - Psalm 90:12 (NRSV)
In our family we have a tradition of reading Psalm 90 on the night of December 31, as we pass into the New Year. I enjoy this opportunity to reflect on the mystery of the passing of time and of my passing with it, on the transience of human life....
God’s hand has led me, is leading me, and will lead me tomorrow.
Guidance for the new year
Respond by posting a prayer.
While several strategies for reopening the world are being discussed, I encourage you—the people of God everywhere—to allow this season to be a formative one during which you can make new discoveries about God and increase your faith. Use this time to embark on a life of prayer, a life of study, and a life of action—involvement in the community.”
