Why “New Beginnings”? The Resurrection of Christ is the New Beginning, and as people of the Resurrection, He desires that we start new every day. Resurrection… Transformation… Reformation… Repentance and Absolution… are all new beginning words, and all are applicable to the Lord’s people today. To resist new beginnings in His grace is to resist the future He has in store for us as His people. And so we pray, and seek, and long for His new beginning among us in this day, at this time, in this place.
