"Let No Crisis Go to Waste"
The slogan "We're all in this together" definitely trended this year. It gave some people the sense that they were not facing the 2020 crisis alone. Many others were suffering the same trials. Many others saw their social life put away under lock and key. Many others felt the loss of wages, the loss of health, the loss of fellowship, and the loss of shared humanity.
The small tokens of human affection and benevolence were to remain tucked away behind a face covering, eagerly awaiting the day when contagious grins and infectious smiles would be uncancelled, free to go viral.
Another tagline gracing the airwaves was, "Let no crisis go to waste." Granted, its favor or disfavor depended largely on who pronounced it. But I don't think it was a totally bad thought.
If you've been dealt lemons, take the seeds and plant a lemon orchard. Don't let a sour note spoil your song.
But do me a favor. Let no lesson from 2020 go unlearned. Take that poison that made you sick and create a powerful antidote for the next crisis. Ask God for wisdom. Gaze over the past year and make sure your 2021 vision is clear, sound, and rational.
We wish each of you God's blessings in the New Year, sincerely hoping it will be a better year for all. Perhaps, 2020 is a foreshadowing of what is yet to come in the next few decades. We hope not, but with the Lord we have a life worth living, a faith worth dying for, and a hope worth sharing!
As one of our songs suggests, our faith in Christ is something the world can never take away from us. We are in a privileged position. We have a power no unbeliever can imagine possible, and a Message of Salvation no scientist or medical expert of this world can dream of. Let's live out our lives as if we fully believe it.
And that's also why we would like to ask you to help us share our music with others. Would you be willing to share one of New Heights Quartet's song with another person? Maybe you have a parent, a brother or sister, or a friend who is sick or discouraged, and in need of uplifting Christian music. Is there a song that has touched you in the past? Please, share it with others!
