2016 is here! Does it feel any different from 2015? To me, New Year's Day always feels like my birthday: when someone asks me if I feel any different, my answer is usually "no." It takes time before a new year feels new to me. And that's probably one of the reasons New Year’s resolutions are so popular to make and so popular not to complete. We want to make a change but, as normal life keeps happening, we lose the time we need to make the change stick.
2015 was a faith-filled year at CLC. We fed over 40,000 people in one afternoon, welcomed Jewish Temples and Christian Churches into our sanctuary for Thanksgiving, and our annual Trash & Treasure sale funded projects in the church and all over the world. We have a habit of making a difference in the world and 2015 was a great example of that. We do what we can to live our faith out loud.
But why do we feed others? Why partner with traditions other than our own? And why support projects in Nepal and right here in Woodcliff Lake? If you've ever wondered why we do what we do, I invite you to read the Bible with us in 2016. In one year, we'll walk through the entire 66 books of scripture. We'll start with Genesis, wrap up with Revelation, and discover if Obadiah is really a book of the Bible (hint: it is). We'll offer drop-In Bible studies at church (Wednesdays at 11:30 am - bring your lunch, and Thursdays at 7 pm), include a special Bible reading in worship each Sunday and dig into scripture at special events. If you've always wanted to read the entire Bible but haven't, I invite you to join us. I'll be sharing special notes, moments, and thoughts through social media in case you can't join our studies. Visit our website www.clc4u.com for more information and a monthly scripture guide.
It only takes 3 chapters a day to cover Scripture. You can do it.
See you in church,
