For adults, beginning a new year, is a bit like being children again:

not knowing what we will learn or how that might change us. It is

comforting that there is One who walks beside us each step of the way.

Jesus, Lord of time, hold us in your eternity.

Jesus, image of God, travel with us the life of faith.

Jesus, friend of sinners, heal the brokenness of our world.

Jesus, Lord of tomorrow, draw us into your future. Amen.
