A Revitalized Focus for 2011


As I was beginning the year and preparing to preach at my home church (as a layman … we are ‘between’ pastors), I was pondering a new years resolution, which I am not in the habit of making. Since I was going to be preaching on ‘The Call to Fruitfulness’ for all Christians and believe that fruitfulness is accomplished best one-to-one, I decided to use a play on words (or numbers) using the year.

So I ended up with a new years resolution which I will remember easily throughout the year by (as I encouraged the congregation to do also) not saying or thinking twenty-eleven or two-thousand eleven when I refer to the year, but to say two-zero-one-one instead.

I welcome your comments and questions.

Yours in Christ,

Sam Allgood
