Devastating fires rocked the northwestern suburbs of Denver along the Denver/Boulder corridor. 1000 homes damaged and many people displaced from their homes as the start of 2022 comes. It has been a difficult couple of years — COVID, effects of the pandemic, social unrest, injustices left and right — and yet, with the start of every new year, we have hopes and dreams and resolutions, that this year will be the year. Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, I look at the subject of blessing and I offer a blessing for the year of 2022. But the blessing comes at the end — it's important that we understand the nature and the power of blessing before we utter a single word.
