It is that time of year when things begin again. I guess you could call it “new life.”
I have learned to be cautious when I think of new beginnings because for the Christian, they come with the baptismal idea of a death to bring about new life.
Just as Jesus dies and rises, we die with Christ and rise to new life with Him in our baptism. Daily new beginnings; how welcome they can be!
Recently I had cause to write a letter to someone and fill them in on the ministry of the church. I was struck by the new beginnings. I made my list and some I share with you.
