For the past few years, the mention of the new millennium has instilled thoughts about our future, feelings about time that has passed, and worry about things yet to come. For some, the coming of the new millennium has great spiritual significance; to others, it will be an event of community and celebration.
Many believe that our third millennium begins just after the stroke
of midnight on December 31, 1999.
Differences in individual beliefs of tradition and time are not
likely to deter the vast majority of people all over the world
from commencing once-in-a-lifetime celebrations when the Year
2000 rings in.
