The week has been spent packing, planning, and finally driving from Nova Scotia Canada to New York City in a van with three other adults and six young adults (some would call them teens).  We've come to New York to share the love of Jesus, and to be stretched in the process.

When we think of prayer, not theologically or theoretically, but rather of our practical experience of prayer, it's easy to be humbled by the reality of what prayer is to us.  Because how we pray, reveals much about what we realy believe about prayer.  If we ask much but listen little in prayer, we are like children who have many 'wants'.  If we pray the prayers of others, we can fall into the trap of praying well, but not experiencing intmacy with the Lord.  Or maybe we just don't pray:  Our time - our life - is too valuable to spend seeking the Lord.

I'm never sure how much stcok to put into reports that we are about to be hit by a storm of 'historic proportions'.  On one hand, I don't wish to be dismissive of the reports.  On the other hand, I don't wish to be overly cautious, only to find that the reports were exaggerated.  So... I'm in New York, I hear the reports, I consider the Big Apple gridlocked under a foot of snow, I wonder at what the driving conditions might be like as I drive closer to the center of the storm's projected track (East/Central Massachusetts), and I need to make a decision.

New Year seems to me to be a time for looking backwards, and for looking forwards.  In looking back, we have an opportunity to learn from the past; to see the mistakes, and to ask 'how do I avoid that error in the future?' and to see the victories and to ask 'how do we go about repeating that?'
