January marks the start of a new year full of promise for us all. I am told thatÂ OprahÂ Winfrey shared her thoughts about the new year when she saidÂ â€œYearâ€™s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience canÂ instillÂ in usâ€.
Our theme for the combined Interfaith Reminiscence and Senior Service on Wednesday, January 15 in the Parlor at Community United Methodist Church will be â€œGoing Onâ€. Our scripture for the service will be fromÂ 2 Corinthians 5:17 â€œTherefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have becomeÂ new.â€
We will be singing songs for Epiphany which Pastor Grace calls that â€œAh ha!â€ moment when the light goes on and we begin to realize what a wonderful gift of hope Christ was for all of us.
Joan and Clyde Uebele will provide their special style of folk music with fiddle and washtub bass and they will invite all of us to participate using percussion instruments for some of the songs.
