New Hope does something funny called Word of the Year (WOTY for short). At the beginning of each year, we encourage folks to prayerfully consider picking a growth word -- something they want to cooperate with God to grow in spiritually over the upcoming year. Could be a character quality, spiritual discipline, or something else. We ask them to get the honest input for their WOTY from those closest to them -- espcially their spouse or best friends. Then those interested are invited to share their WOTY with each other.
