Minister's New Year's Message 2017
Happy New Year to all! And Happy 150th to Canada!
Have you listed your resolutions? Made plans to join the gym or hit the treadmill yet? Many of us make resolutions based on self-improvement, things like quitting bad habits, or improving certain behaviours. Those are all worthy endeavours. But, one wonders how often do we make resolutions that involve actions that might build a better world for others?
Perhaps one might resolve to be more accepting of the diversity of our changing cultural milieu. There are so many ways to learn about the many cultural groups that have made Canada their home. Or how about resolving to get involved in a group or agency that works for the common good - a local food bank, a shelter for people at risk of family violence, a child development group, or even the local library - to name just a few ideas.
We have the privilege of living in a country that is celebrating a milestone year. What a better time to commit to making it an even better place to live. Our faith story tells us that it is God's will for us to love our neighbours as ourselves. As you look to setting personal goals and resolutions, why not resolve to reach beyond the personal and respond to the call to love.
May 2017 be filled with blessings for all.
Blessings and peace, Tammy (Reverend Tammy Allan)
