I was asked 'What do you think this New Year holds for us?' My response was that I suppose it will be mostly unknown - even the outcome of the Brexit debate!
However, one thing I am sure of is that in any New Year we are given 365 days of opportunity to do some good in our community and in the wider world.

The real question is what are we going to do about that...

We can continue on the same old routines, which if they've been unsuccessful in the past will probably be unsuccessful in the future - or we can choose to do something different and, perhaps, radical.

When I read the New Testament part of my Bible, I discover that the Lord Jesus Christ and His followers did something different to the usual. They went against the tide of public opinion and set new standards and faced new challenges. 

So, this year, I'm asking God to show me how to live differently so that I can make a positive difference in my community.
It may not be easy - but I'm prepared to give it a go!  What about you? Will you join me?

And as we start this year, perhaps a visit to one of our church services would help you to discover what God might want of you. You'd be made most welcome.

At Upper Gornal:
10.45am- Jonathan Jones;
