This is a prayer modeled after the ancient New Year prayers or “first-footing” prayers of Scotland and northern England where villagers often went house to house wishing each other a good year.
New Year's Day
So this year, as would mathematically make sense, has both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day on Sundays. Last week we began contemplating what to do with the Christmas Day/Sunday service. This week, join in as we wonder how to best ring in 2012…in worship. What ideas, thoughts, germs-of-phrases, songs, or actions do you have in mind? What kind of service would you like to have, if you could do anything you wanted?
Share your ideas, hopes, and dreams–for the New Year’s Day worship experience, and the New Year–here!
