I am getting ready to leave the convention and I thought about what happened over these last days. Lots if resolutions are fluff. They are nice – commending this or that or the other, but some have real life changing, and I might say life giving power when they connect us to God’s mercy by tangible action. I think many of those were passed. The next three years are going to be interesting as well as we stand on the Words and promises of God and remind each other what we are baptized for.
