Pastoral Letter 2nd January 2022

Pastor Dorothy Choi

Happy New Year to you and your family!

We often have a new year’s resolution for the beginning of a year. In the times of uncertainty, living by faith is more critical than ever before.

In the past year, we have adapted to the new normal in varying degrees. Making plans and having short and long-term goals used to be the norm. Now, we cannot be sure whether our plans can eventuate. In faith, we commit all of our plans to God but the Lord establishes our steps.

From our experiences in the past two years, we have to admit that there are many uncertainties in life. These uncertainties wear us down and bring us a lot of pressure. Yet, when we learn to trust in faith and turn our eyes upon Jesus, our worries will diminish. Our reflection on the past two years tells us that fear and worries do not help us at all.

There is a risk of infection when there is more physical connection with others. While we follow all the health advices and measures, it still takes a step of faith when we go out, meet up with friends, or attend physical worship or bible study.

May this be our new year’s resolution for 2022: Almighty God, help us, the CPCers to walk by faith and not by sight in our daily lives in 2022 so our “faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power” (1 Cor 2:5).






願這是我們2022年的新年立志:全能的神,請幫助我們、長老會的會眾,在 2022 年的日常生活中能夠憑著信心行事,而不是單憑眼睛所見,好讓我們的“信不在乎人的智慧,只在乎神的大能”(哥林多前書 2:5)。
