Most people start the New Year wanting to improve their lives in one of the following areas: health, relationships, finances, or personal growth—to name a few. However, what we learned from last year is that we never know what a new year might hold in store. 2020 made us feel like a kite in a hurricane: at the mercy of the elements while hanging on by a string. Yet, there is hope in every circumstance and situation.

Do you wish to see growth in specific areas of your life? Which ones? The next question to ask yourself is “What is this worth to me?” Every win, gain or growth in our life will require a sacrifice in some area of our life.

As we begin the New Year with a new series and a wonderful new pastoral family, Pastors Jamil & Vanessa, we set our eyes to the future that God has prepared for Miami Temple for such a time as this.

Like the Early Church, we believe that God wants us to rediscover basic, primitive, and yes, radically simple forms of Christianity. This means more than not having some of the things we have (or haven’t had) thanks to the pandemic. Radically simple faith is about looking at our lives and circumstances in ways we wouldn’t otherwise do. Join us as we grow together in 2021!

JANUARY DIGITAL BULLETIN
You’re probably still getting used to writing 2021 in all your communications, letters, and reports. To help ease you into the new year, here is the digital version of our January Bulletin, which is now available for your reading pleasure.

This month’s theme is “Radically Simple Faith.” As we reflect on last year and set our eyes on what we want to accomplish in 2021, simplifying things is key. This month, the pastoral team will unpack what it means to have and live a radically simple faith.

Our Christmas gift was the arrival of two new pastors who happen to be a husband and wife team: Pastors Jamil and Vanessa Hairston. To find out more about them, be sure to read the We Are Miami Temple section.

In The Herd, Caleb Cortes, the master of self-deprecation, talks about new year resolutions and summarizes his accomplishments for 2020.

Want to know what it’s like to juggle being a young adult, mom to two toddlers, pastor’s wife, and a professional? Sarah Fernández shares some of her experiences and pearls of wisdom she gleaned as a young mom during the past three years. She also talks about her plans for the Mom Knows Best column.

Pastor Laffit recently asked three vital questions to our church family about prayer, our relationship with God, and verses that helped us last year, and in this issues, we share some of the answers he received. You’ll find them in Miami Temple Speaks.

In the Time for Health section, Wilny Audain, our First Elder discusses briefly the advantages of telling the truth faster and what that actually means.

Lastly, there nothing more satisfying and refreshing than a salad that also packs a punch. Check out Peggy Exumé’s Taco Salad in the Recipes section.

As always, we encourage you to share this issue with your friends and family who are sure to benefit from it. If you have any comments and suggestions on how we can improve our Bulletin, please send them to communications@miamitemple.org.

Happy New Year!
