The birth of a child is exciting;
the death of a loved one tragic.
Beginning a new job is exciting;
when a job suddenly ends, we have many other emotions.
Beginnings are exciting;
ends are often sad;
and they happen in that order: beginning then end.
For the Christian, Christ changes this. The order is reversed from End to Beginning — His end on the cross means the beginning of new life for us. Christ changes sadness at ends to joyous new beginnings in Him.
Join us November 1 to December 20 while we journey through ends to beginnings as we draw close to the manger of Christ, whose end on the cross brings our old ways to an end and we are begun anew in this life and to eternity.
