Episode 06: One Word for the New Year

Geoff and Joe Discuss Hopes for 2016

A new year is a great time to look back upon the year past and to look ahead to the future.  In this episode Pastor Geoff and Pastor Joe look at some of the things they are excited to do in 2016.

Geoff and Joe also share their one word.

Want to pick one word for 2016?  Something to help you focus and achieve personal transformation?

Determine the kind of person you want to become.  This goes beyond just wanting to make superficial changes.  To really make effective change and work towards a better life you need to drive deep into your soul.

Then identify the characteristics of becoming that person.  Get a picture of that person and then simply identify major characteristics. Do you see someone who is gentle, or generous?  What are the qualities that stand out the most?

Third, pick a word.  Once you have a list of the characteristics, simply pick a word. There might be fifteen things that you want to change, but resist the temptation to promise you will do them all. Instead, simply commit to ONE WORD.

This will provide you with a lens to see the changes you need to make as well as a way to determine whether or not change is actually happening. Understand that this process is hard, but staying focused on your word will help you to struggle in the right direction so that you can actually see God working in your life.

If you want to share your word with Geoff and Joe please do!  We are excited to hear from you.
