First Sunday after Christmas – Colossians 3:12-17

Grace, peace and mercy to you from God our Father and our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

“But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”

For better or for worse, 2009 rapidly draws to a close in the next few days and the arrival of a new year often leads to contemplation and resolutions. Whether you are one who makes new year resolutions and tries hard to keep them, I’ll leave that to you; but St. Paul gives us good words as we look to the upcoming year, and whatever the Lord has in mind for the Cairns Lutheran Parish – for His people here and everywhere as we await His return in glory.

Heavenly Father, sanctify us in the truth, your Word is truth. Amen.
