Episode 58: O is for Ostapowich

[ download ]

Happy New Year! Pastor Riley and Kate are joined by Sandra Ostapowich to discuss resolutions and the New Year. Making resolutions is a New Year's tradition. We imagine that we can "fix" the parts of ourselves, or our churches, or our relationships that we don't like. It is easy to believe we can control our own lives and perfect ourselves. Should we not make resolutions then? Should we not try to plan our year, make goals for ourselves, or "better" ourselves? Should we simply focus on our day to day vocations? Or is there a good mixture of planning and perspective that should guide us as we try to love our neighbor, ourselves, and God "better" in the New Year, always remembering that it is not us who does the good work, but Christ in us?
