Many important things will happen in 2016. In a few days, our city-parish will inaugurate a new city-parish president, and our state will inaugurate a new governor. By year’s end, we will elect a new president. All eyes will be on the oil and gas industry praying for a rebound. Many of you enter this New Year with unanswered questions and unresolved issues of 2015. All of this is important, but none of these things are important as “Seeking first the Kingdom of God.” That’s why we turn our attention there this morning as we begin this year.
