Make Faithful Intentions This New Year


December 26, 2018

Happy New Year from Good Shepherd United Methodist Church!

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas season with family, friends and those you love. Please enjoy these thoughts from Laurens Glass, a website manager at the national United Methodist Communications Organization. She shares the following thoughts as we head into a new year.

Resolving to be more spiritual is not a hard date to keep or a hard bar to leap over. It’s a daily resetting of your mind and soul. It’s trying again when you “fail” and knowing that you can never fail if you’re trying. It is…grace. Here are a few ideas for growing spiritually and for spurring you to think of your own. Count to

Ten; Breathe; Think Positive Thoughts; Love and Forgive Yourself; Love One Another; Pray Right Where You Are; Be Grateful and Joyful; and finally Think of the Other Fellow. You don’t have to master all spiritual practices this week or even this year. But you can earnestly strive to be more spiritual at any point in time. It is

an ongoing practice. A resolution you can re-make daily. Happy New Year!

Good Shepherd’s church doors are open to you and your family and we hope you will join us for worship at 9:30 a.m. Sundays at 1201 Leta Drive, corner of Main St. and Leta Dr. in Security. We would love to see you in 2019.
