As we enter 2021 we bring with it some of the luggage of 2020. We are still in the midst of a pandemic that has dramatically altered many of our lives.

We will probably lose our second Lent and Easter season due to continued necessity to guard against spread of COVID. It’s a different world, a different normal, and things will probably not go back to business as usual.

The hope of the gospel is that our lives can adjust and change for the better – our new normal can be something ensnared in God’s good will and vision.
