Beginning Again: How to Start a New Year
31 December 2021 |
Our teacher scheduled for this week, David Geelan, had a medical emergency and isn’t able to teach. Your teachers will be Loren Seibold and John McLarty.
Topics we’ll be covering that relate to the junction between old and new:
- Accomplishments: past and upcoming
- Contentment and acceptance—of others and ourselves
- How much can we change—and expect ourselves to change?
- Grief, depression and regret from the past year, and…
- …finding strength in the new
- Pushing back against perfectionism, ambition, expectations
Two things you can read for tomorrow:
- Always Beginning Again: A Sermon to Begin the New Year, by Loren Seibold
- I’ll Lay a Feather: A Poem, by John McLarty
John McLarty and Loren Seibold.

About our class:
- The AT Sabbath Seminar is intended to be a courteous forum. We discuss and ask questions politely. We don’t accuse, get angry, or put people down.
- Stick to the topic in both comments and chat discussion.
- Make your comments and questions short—don’t dominate.
- Keep your microphones muted unless you are called upon to make your comment or ask your question.
- Indicate your interest in speaking by raising your electronic hand—under the “reactions” button.
- Please use your name when you sign in! Not your phone number, not your initials. This will help us differentiate you from unwelcome guests who want to disrupt us. You can set your name after signing on by clicking on the 3 dots next to your picture, which drops down a menu.
- If it should happen that we are attacked so that we have to stop the meeting, we’ll quickly post a new meeting link on our AT Facebook page.
We look forward to getting acquainted with you!
