We enter 2015 feeling a bit like I did coming out of British Columbia's glacier fed lakes for our annual polar dip with friends in 2014: uncomfortable and slightly crazy.
But that was last year -- an uncomfortable year filled with tremendous uncertainty. We felt like we were going crazy.
But that was last year.
Tomorrow is 2015 and we'll be jumping into the icy waters again….I'll be thinking about the year ahead and considering what will be our aim.
The word I'll be thinking about is "listen". I want 2015 to marked by our desire to listen to people in our new neighbourhood and our new city, Fresno. We want Jesus to teach us how to connect what we hear our city saying and what we hear our Lord saying.
If one gives an answer before he hears, it is his folly and shame. (Proverbs 18:13)In 2015 we will be learning how to listen.
