I grew up in a church that almost always had a defining catchphrase to mark each New Year. There was "It's all about Heaven in '77" and "On the Front Line in '89" and "Coming Alive in '95." The list goes on and on. I loved those slogans, and looked forward to Watch Night Service when my father (who was senior pastor of the church) would announce the new rhyming slogan that would be set in motion the moment the clock struck a second after midnight. To some, they might sound silly and pointless, but those phrases gave us a focus and a charge. They weren't just empty words. If we took them to heart, they meant that we believed that God had something new in store for us. They energized our faith and our determination. They reminded us that what we currently saw, was not all there was. There were bigger and better things to come if we placed our hope and trust in the Lord's hands.
