A new year is always an exciting time in the life of Saloma Baptist Church. It brings a new season of mission and ministry and a time of new beginnings. We are in the midst of the winter season and may experience periods of very cold temperatures, snow, and bad weather.

However, the spirit of God is ever present in all seasons of the year. While many people indicate that they become depressed during the month of January and following the excitement of the holidays, I have long experienced a renewed sense of energy and consider the new year as a time of new beginnings and new opportunities - it is in essence a new season.

Life is full of new seasons. Having just retired from my full-time role at Campbellsville University, I have begun a new season of my life in this new year of 2016. I'll continue on a part-time role at CU, an institution which holds a very important place in my heart and life, but I felt that the Holy Spirit was definitely moving me to a new season of life and a time of new beginnings. I'm truly excited about 2016, about what God is going to do in the mission and ministry of Saloma Baptist Church, and what lies ahead this year.

Will you join me in this new beginning? Actually, each new day is a day of new beginnings in Jesus Christ. That is truly something to be excited about! May 2016 be a year of kingdom advance for Saloma Baptist Church and for our individual walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
