The Gate of the Year
And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.” And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
-- Minnie Louise Haskins
Rev. Dr. Charles Geddes
Rev. Dr. Geddes is taking inspiration from the Prayer of Saint Francis, which President Elect Joe Biden referenced in a speech recently:
Relevant to our lives now:
“Where there is despair; hope.
Where there is darkness, light.”
He will share the entire magnificent prayer for us to carry into 2021...
Rev. Orlinda Worthington
We’ll explore what it means to live above or below the line of conscious spiritual commitment in your life, and how to tell the difference.
Rev. Dr. Dia Lynn
When we stand in our spiritual presence and authority we create as God created. We begin now to manifest our hopes, dreams, and intentions from times past. We recommit ourselves to increase our awareness of heaven indwelling. This year we will witness the transformation of consciousness in humanity, and bring miracles to the earth and all its beings.
Rev. Dr. Martha Creek
Any spirituality that makes too much of quoting the teachings and not expressing the teachings is not ready for a “prime-time” life. God/Source clearly wants friends and partners to be images of divinity expressing in the world. It is this through and as, this more mature living and Cosmic Christ Consciousness, that we can gain a whole new understanding and a deliberate passion for BEING it. Aligning as divine and human — both words are essential.
Rev. Jean Sweet
Your copy should address 3 key questions: Who am I writing for? (Audience) Why should they care? (Benefit) What do I want them to do here? (Call-to-Action)
Create a great offer by adding words like "free" "personalized" "complimentary" or "customized." A sense of urgency often helps readers take an action, so think about inserting phrases like "for a limited time only" or "only 7 remaining!"

Our next Family Promise service will be the week of January 24, 2021. New volunteers are always welcome. There are many ways to help homeless families to achieve the goal of sustainable independence – prepare an evening meal, spend an overnight, and purchase groceries. Volunteers must be trained to serve as overnight hosts.
You can make a donation at familypromisehelena.org or to First Christian Church (311 Power St, Helena MT 59601). First Christian has donated their facilities for safe overnight housing of the families, and can use financial assistance to cover increased utility and plumbing costs.
Contact Catherine Metsch 933-5743 for information about Family Promise and how you can volunteer.
As we open our minds and hearts to a brighter future, we gratefully know that includes our wonderful new minister.
Together we settle in to a New Year, a new way of being, and a new way of thinking.
We celebrate our our bright future.
Things are going great, and life is a parade.
The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades!
As we have been sheltering in place, we have had many reminders about how precious our earth is. The hope is that you are buried in recyclable material now. Keep it up! There's always enough room and time to sort everything out. More importantly, we've had time to consider how much plastic we use and how unnecessary much of it is.
Rev. Jean is still saving bottle caps to fuel her big vision. Which ones? Any bottle cap you would throw in the trash, such as vitamin bottle caps, water bottle caps, prescription bottle caps, milk carton caps, you get the idea. Please collect them in a cardboard box and bring the full box to Rev. Jean.
PLEASE DO NOT bring the caps in a plastic bag, as we are eliminating the use of plastic.
Take a moment to thank Dianne Nickman, our "Recycle Queen," who takes our plastic, glass, paper, and cardboard to the transfer station every month.
The path forward may sometimes be unclear.
And it may be messy.
But the shared heart is calling,
and we have an opportunity to make lasting shifts toward love and justice in our world.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your family, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.
