“Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.”
New years is a great time to celebrate, in fact, I'd like to think that I threw some of the most epic all nighters when I was doing youth ministry, on New Years Eve every year. Looking back at the previous year is a good exercise and making goals and resolutions for the coming year can also be a good exercise. There is certainly nothing wrong with celebrating, but we should also take a smart approach to the coming year. Here is what you and everyone else should expect in the coming year and, I hope, some thoughtful ideas for how you should approach those things.
