The co-ministers finish out the calendar year of worship services with a New Year’s liturgy and reflection on how we know what’s new in our lives. How do we know when we are in the middle of a momentous change of life? Sometimes a “New Year” really begins for us in the fall or in the spring! Sometimes it begins when important relationships that have shaped our lives are ending because of distance or death. If the rituals of this formal “new year” are feeling hollow for you, maybe there is a different way to discern and celebrate what’s new in your life.
