Happy New Year!

January is named after the Roman deity Janus, the god of thresholds.   He had two faces, one that looked back and one that looked forward.  So that’s what we do on New Year’s.  We look back on the year that has passed and we look forward to the year ahead.

Whether your 2011 was a year of trials or thanksgivings or both and whatever 2012 will hold for you, I hope that you will know the promise of Psalm 31:15:  “My times are in your hand.”

    2011 saw me finally settle on a church home after years of wandering. I discovered Dr. Veith’s writings and the rest is history.

    I am so grateful to my Lord and Saviour for putting up with my fears, uncertainties and lack of faith all these years. I begged for “The Hound of Heaven” to find me and reveal His truth.

    I am also grateful and very thankful for my new LCMS pastor and congregation. My heart overflows with joy and peace.

    Happy New Year, Dr. Veith and to all the members of this blog. I not only enjoy many of your insights, but also connections to various links and others blogs and websites. May 2012 bring God’s blessings and joy to you and yours.

    Happy New Year, Dr. Veith!!

    I came to know of you when you spoke at the congregation that I belonged to on “The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe” about five years ago.

    I have since been in attendance at The Congress on the Lutheran Confessions, in Bloomington, MN, where you have presented.

    God’s richest blessings in 2012!!

    I believe we first met at Brenham Free Conference here in Texas.
    [I would love to have heard a discussion of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe! ]

    Yes–I would love to hear or read about a discussion of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!

    You don’t have enough to do, of course. (:
