What is a year? In the Hebrew it is Shannah which has a double meaning: 1. Repeat 2. Change. The year of 2018 is a Shannah, either it’s a repetition of the past or a choice to change. The way of the world is to repeat—but the way of God is the way of newness and change. His will is that this year of 2018, the Shannah ahead of you be not a time of repetition, but of change, of new beginnings, of new steps, of breaking out of the old ways and the old nature. You have a new year before you. So what kind of year will it be? I invite you to step out of your old ways, habits, and steps. Do what you’ve never done before and …Come to our Cooperate PRAYER on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at 7 pm.
