In just a few days, on December 8th, Begin Anew will celebrate our graduates! It is a very exciting time as we pause to think about how far our students have come and pray for them as they consider where they will go from here on their journey forward.
While this celebration is an unchanging tradition for us, at least one thing will be different. We will be in a new location this time. Eastland Baptist Church at 1215 Gallatin Ave. in Nashville will be providing their space for our event, and we would like to express our deep gratitude to this church and to Pastor Jason Rumbaugh for his gracious hospitality toward Begin Anew. If you would like to visit, they offer Sunday School classes at 9:30 AM, and they have a café that serves coffee and doughnuts from 10:30 -10:50 am. Sunday morning service begins at 10:50 am.
God seems to be very busy at work in our midst, calling on us all to learn new things, meet new people, rise to new challenges, and go to new places. It can feel unsettling for us sometimes as we are thrust into change, but one thing we can be sure will always be the same… “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; and great is His faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23.
