Hopeful New Year 2015! 希望にあふれた新年でありますように!

「天に輝くあなたの威光をたたえます。あなたの天を、あなたの指の業を、私は、仰ぎます。月も、星も、あなたが配置なさったもの。そのあなたが、み心に留めてくださるとは、人間とは、何者なのでしょうか。あなたが、顧みてくださるとは!」(詩篇8:2 & 4)

“O LORD, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?” (Psalm 8:1-4)

As we begin the new year of 2015, we pray to our God of new beginnings, who wipes away our tears and calls us to care for one another.  Lord, Give us eyes to see your gifts, hearts to embrace all creation, and hands to serve you every day of our lives!
