Welcome The New!
It’s now 2014, a new year that brings a variety of what I call the new! Isn’t experiencing the new a good thing? A new pair of shoes, a new outfit, a new car, a new job, a new pair of sox, a new baby, a new boy/girl friend, a new semester, a new month, new whatever…! Yes I think the new is a good thing. God gives us each new days, new opportunities to bring glory to him and new experiences to enjoy his new blessings. But, too many, the new means change and uncertainty and unfamiliarity. The new can cause fear because of the unknown. We can count on God to help us with the fear of the new. In fact the Bible contains 365 times the phrase “don’t be afraid or fear not”. Join me as I continue the adventure though the Book of Acts and join me as we face the fear of the new with the power and grace of God that will help us embrace the new of this New Year.

The question is not “Is God leading?” but rather “Are we following?”
