Our machinery grinds to a momentary pause as we take stock of the year in passing. Resolutions are attempted and we begin the year with a mixture of hope and trepidation of what is to come.

It is difficult to be a Christian in the world today. We are living in a time where there is a sense of hopelessness; in a world that seems so divided, where people are lacking meaning, purpose and direction in life.
