Happy New Year!

The calendars all say that a new year begins in January. The Church’s traditional “liturgical” calendar says that it begins sometime after Thanksgiving with the first Sunday of Advent. But if you ask me, a new year begins in September, right after Labor Day. That might come from having spent almost twenty years of my life going to school, followed by parenting children for over 26 years, one of whom still is in school. But, regardless, a new year begins in September.

And that’s reflected in our life together as a community of faith.
