Happy New Year!!!

There will not be a lot to note the passage from 2000 to 2001.

Just the tick of the clock, a few hoots and hollers, the prayers of the ernest, and then we again move to business as usual.

Watch night, a time when people of color anxiously awaited the approach of midnight, and the freedom it signaled on the other side.

Watch night 2000, a chance for us to symbolically seize a new freedom, an opporunity to do things different both spiritually and secularly.

So as the day approaches, and we on the Northern East Coast of the United States prepare for a massive snow storm, what are first, your resolutions for 2001? And second, if you could make a resolution for the church (and by this I am looking way beyond denominations), what would it be for 2001?

As you ponder and persent, may I wish each and every one of you a Happy and Prosperus New Year under the guidance and blessing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For my most memorable New Year was when Jesus made me a new man, by bathing me in the blood He shed on Calvary's cross!!!

Again may you have a happy and blessed New Years!!!

Happy New Year Rev. Fisher a.k.a my biological brother. I do not make resolutions but instead I set goals for my self. My goal is always to be closer to God and Christ and to make evangelism a priority. My dream and goal for this upcoming year is to have an outreach ministry on at least one Native American reservation in Montana. I know God wants us to deliver the good news to everyone. I am so thankful for your internet ministry for I have made such wonderful friends. I pray for all churches and ask that we can work together. My goal is to be a light in my corner of the world. And I want to work within the AME denomination to be a bridge to others who are not people of color so that we can tear down the walls of racism. To the entire AME family, I wish you a very happy new year!
