It turned out to be a wonderful way to start the year. It was a sunny, clear morning and the sun was streaming through the windows of the church. It was a small turnout but it was so nice to be present with our church family. We had a potluck lunch afterwards and it was nice to get together with church family. Our pastor's sermon was wonderful and did a terrific job of helping us to move into 2017 with our priorities aligned. He began with Isaiah 43:17 - 18.
