Celebrating a New Beginning
A Holiday Message from Randy
Yes, 2020 was filled with challenges, hardship and uncertainty. It was like nothing we have ever experienced, and I hope we never do again. While some would have you only see the hardships, I saw people helping each other by supporting local restaurants and businesses. Innovation about how we could work safely together and protect our loved ones and co-workers. We saw Churches find ways to deliver the Good News in ways we never imagined and communities bonding together to help those with the most need.
When I walk through the shop at Jarrett Bay and I see the team shaping wood into boats, I am reminded of a son of a carpenter born into a world with no room for him except for a manger. A man who would recruit fishermen to help him spread a message of hope for each of us. The story of 2020 was one of difficulty and hardship but more importantly, it was a story of community and hope. As my wife Tiffany reminded me, it is a time for us to celebrate a new beginning and the Joy we can share with each other.
I look forward to 2021 and celebrating our 35th anniversary, but as this year comes to a close, I hope each of you are filled with joy and happiness.
