Resolutions for the New Year: Putting Faith, Hope and Love in Action

The New Year is a time to reflect back on the year that has passed and look ahead to the new one. It is a time when many of us make resolutions to lead a more meaningful life, or enrich the path we are on. Here are some suggestions from United Methodist Women for ways to live a more spiritual life in the coming year.

Help equip women and girls to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Follow your heart, answer the call, give to the World Thank Offering.
Spontaneous additional gifts can be given out of gratitude for God's abundance and in celebration of the joys of life.
The World Thank Offering is an opportunity for individuals to respond to God's abundance and grace with spontaneous gifts of gratitude. The funds collected are used in the total program of mission carried on through United Methodist Women's national office in the United States and around the world.

Or you can support the work of United Methodist Women for the next 150 years and donate to Mission Giving.

Take Action: Work for Justice through Service and Advocacy.
Pick one or more justice issues you care about, and try to create change: Contact your elected officials urging them to end child and family detention. Pick one (or more) of the 13 steps to environmental sustainability to implement or improve on.

Learn and grow: Read a Spiritual Growth Study or join our Reading Program and expand your knowledge year-round.

Volunteer at one of our many National Mission Institutions.

Take an Ubuntu Journey.
