I hope you are all having an exciting and Happy New Year. In a few hours we will be in January which is named for the two faced god Janus. Just like Janus we can look forwards with confidence and backwards without fear.
But for some of us looking forwards can be a source of tribulation so I leave you this year with this poem repeated by the King at the end of his Christmas broadcast in the dark year of 1939. Its called “God Knows” or “The Man at the gate of the year”
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.”
May that Almighty hand guide and uphold us all.
Happy New Year!
