    Many Christian denominations and even independent churches, will establish “The Year of…”, that is, they declare that the new year will have a special emphasis that will permeate all that transpires in and through them.  Fr. George is calling Great Shepherd to embrace 2017 as “The Year of Pondering”. By this he means he would like us to slow down and deeply contemplate our relationship with the Lord, with the Church, and with those outside of the church. He would like pondering and contemplation to permeate all that we do, say, think, and even consider doing during 2017.  He wants us to resist busyness and consumerism in all its forms, even those which have become a part of the modern American church, in all of its diversity. As hard as it may seem, some Christians have difficulty slowing down to ponder and contemplate the things of the Lord. We need to be able to do this in order to be healthy disciples of Jesus Christ.   During the next 12 months, he will be sharing periodic emails regarding this topic. Throughout the year he will be suggesting books that we all read (or re-read).  Many of the sermons given during this year will focus on “The Year of Pondering”.
