2015: A Year in Review


2015.

The year we moved from Canada back to Portland.

The year I began full-time seminary at George Fox.

The year my son was born.

The year that same son had open heart surgery.

The year I met my birth mother.

The year I published my third book, Jesus Goes to the Movies.

The year I launched my film review website, Cinemayward.com.

The year I healed from burnout, a year of death and resurrection, a year of new life.

Perhaps that's the theme of 2015: new life. A new heart. A new paradigm. Renewed faith and hope and love. New direction and purpose and vision. All things new.

It may be too early to tell, but I imagine I'll look back on 2015 as a year of incredible significance, a sort of historical BC/AD moment where everything changed. It's hard to articulate how different I am now from one year ago. Everything is new.

New. I suppose that tiny three-letter word will have to do.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
