As we say ‘Goodbye’ to 2016
what will we remember?
A summer of sport?
Something more personal?
Something good, or something bad?
What about 2017?
Are we looking forward with expectation?
Or with fear, loneliness, worry?
For all that has been:
we give thanks for your presence with us
your love and your forgiveness
For all that is to come:
we ask for the strength to keep trusting in you
for the growth of your Kingdom in Dumbarton
for growth in our two congregations
and for peace and justice in your world
