My niece introduced me to the idea a few years ago of finding a word, one word, to set your intention for the new year.
I have come up with this word.
I will go into this new year with the intention to understand.
Understand the other.
Understand the world.
Understand the lessons that are before me to learn.
And today I keep thinking of this passage from the Bible.which I have heard so many times during Communion services.
