The church sign in front of First Parish currently reads: “Reflect, Review, Repent, Renew!”

These words offer a New Year’s challenge. As we reflect on our lives and review this past year, we may note that we have fallen short and recognize a need for repentance and renewal in our lives.

Many consider a “resolution” in the new year, perhaps going to a gym, maybe to lose a few of those extra pounds, but how many think of their spiritual needs?

Would you consider a thorough evaluation of your life in this new year? An accurate reflection and review? Might you consider turning your life over to Jesus Christ by repenting of past sin and asking God to renew you in this new year, through Jesus Christ?
