This New Year's Eve, millions of Americans will ring in 2015 by making resolutions and vowing to improve themselves or alter their lifestyle in some way. While it is commonly said that only a small percentage of the population will actually stick to their resolution, Rev. Dr. Ron Griffen of First United Methodist Church believes the New Year can be a great time for self-reflection and improvement.

Griffen took time from his Sunday sermon to speak to the congregation about the New Year and the story of the Magi following the North Star to Bethlehem.
