I've been giving a great deal of thought to the idea of making and keeping New Year's resolutions. It is easy to become skeptical, knowing that within a week most resolutions bite the dust. Yet this year I remain optimistic - both for myself and for my congregation. We are in the midst of making life changes for a better 2011. It is easy, however, to become overly focused on the end result rather than on the small steps that will take us to our goal. The sad thing is that the journey itself is often as exciting and enjoyable as the destination. What small step can you take today that will take you one step closer to your goal?
