2020 Year in Review: Remembering God’s Goodness in an Uncertain Year

In January 2020, I celebrated a milestone birthday by inviting a rather large group of friends to join me for a night of  music, dancing, eating, and laughing together. Looking back on that day nearly a year ago brings a complexity of emotions — joy, grief, longing, and even hope that we’ll all be able to come together again in a similar fashion in 2021. If you told me then what 2020 would hold, I may have responded in disbelief or even fear that I would not be able to endure what was to come. Even while we’re still not through all of the challenges that 2020 brought to us, it still felt right to look back on the year that we had together with the All Shall Be Well podcast. As I listened to some of the conversations with our fantastic guests this year, I was struck by the way many of our guests invited us to remember the goodness of God, especially as we endure difficulty or heal from past experiences. My hope is that this year-in-review episode may allow us to see how Jesus has been with us in 2020 and remind us that he goes before us into this new year, whatever unknowns it may bring.
