HAPPY NEW YEAR!

What does New Year mean to you? New Resolutions - to stress you out? Or a new start with a clean slate and a firm guarantee of a better future?

Yes, it's a New Year - but it doesn't always feel like a new start. Especially not if we're wrapped in mist, mud and gloom or trapped by snow and ice. Somehow springtime would seem a better symbol of fresh new opportunities.

But what if you're not looking for something 'symbolic'? What if you need things to change - really change - right NOW?

It's possible.

God says:

Forget the former things; Do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!

Isaiah 43:18,19

January 27th:
INTERNATIONAL HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY

Corrie ten Boom was one of the many Christian people who helped hundreds of Jews escape the Nazi concentration camps in the Second World War. She herself survived Ravensbruck, but most of her family died there. "The Hiding Place", her autobiography (recently made into a film) is available in the church library.
Interviews with Corrie ten Boom are available to watch on online video websites.
180movie.com includes a clear presentation about the Holocaust - and other serious subjects.
Suffering
Dan's sermon on the 27 Jan 2013 was on the subject of "Suffering"

You're welcome to drop in!
