As we reach the end of another year, I’d like to pause and thank you for reading this blog, for sharing its posts on Facebook and Twitter, and for engaging me in the comments. You have corrected me when I relied on lazy assumption, and you have supported me when things got personal.
I cannot fully express how humbling it is to reflect on the fact that people, other than my parents (who have to read my writing), or spammers would take the time to read my writing. What started out as a place to post my sermons so I would have them all in one place has become a community I value and would never have expected.
So, where ever you are as this new year dawns, I pray that you will be quick to notice blessings and kindness, challenged to live what you believe, and empowered to participate in the grace that has saved us.
Know how thankful I am for you, whether I know you in real life or only through this blog. Thank you for being a part of Glass Overflowing.
Happy New Year!
N.B… “participate in the grace that has saved you” is a line from my favorite book by Marilynne Robinson, Gilead. Adapted here with gratitude for her brilliant writing which inspires me always.
