Happy New Year’s

Today is the dawn of a brand new day, why not make it a year to remember. Yes, there are events that occur throughout our lives we cannot control, but the majority we can and with resolve…well, that chapters for you to write. Have yourselves a most wonderful day and a huge shout out to our many, many volunteers who helped make yesterday’s New Year’s Fireworks the best ever. You rock! No seriously, you lit the skies with your genuine love for our city. Bravo!

Beginning tomorrow, we will start a new set of “Declarations” aimed at instilling within us a Biblical mindset on topics that hit close to home. I hope you’ll enjoy them, that they’ll build your spirit and establish within you an unshakable, immovable faith. I’ll now leave you with these thoughts…

1 Corinthians 1:10 (ESV) I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.

Philippians 2:1-5 (ESV) So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,
