Looking forward to a new year—or a new vision of reality?

Of course, there's nothing wrong with making plans and commitments for the coming year. People are naturally thinking about the future. And you would probably be hard pressed to find a newspaper or magazine this week without some essay, commentary, or opinion poll on what we might anticipate in 1994. People are writing down their resolutions, renewing their hopes, looking forward.

Certainly we all should have our lives in order. We should have worthwhile goals and strive for personal development. Yet at the same time, it's clear that there's a whole world beyond our own personal needs and aspirations, and as Christians we can't escape our wider responsibilities.
