A new year means a new slate, right? We waited for the ball to drop with the hope that with the new year, something, anything, might change for the better.
Maybe this year, I will get my life together. Maybe this year, I will follow through with the resolutions I made two years ago.
But with the expectations of a new slate comes the pressure to follow through and perform, or simply show up. Maybe this year, my children will be less anxious. Maybe this year, I will be less anxious.
Our Holy Scriptures speak a word of Good News to us when the pressures of the expectations of a new year begin to weigh on us.
This Good News begins at our baptism when God calls us Beloved, moving toward the Transfiguration of Jesus when the glory of Jesus is revealed to the disciples.
