I’ve always found so many opportunities for new beginning throughout the year– the first day of each new season, New Year’s Day, of course, Advent, which is traditionally seen as the beginning of the church year, every new month, every new week– so many chances to start again!
There have been lots of new beginnings for us over the past few weeks. My birthday was a week ago. I turned 46, and it hit me hard. I spent 5 days in New York City, wandering about, thinking about life, and seeing lots and lots of shows. I saw The Saintliness of Margery Kempe, Mean Girls, School of Rock, Anastasia, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
