From the Shepherd's Voice
Often out of chaos and brokenness, beautiful things emerge. As students head back to school, they will hear, once again, that study, hard work and practice--whether in class, sports or band--will give them great results and a foundation for a successful future. When we consider our Christian story, we are reminded of this sequence. The bloody, messy and painful crucifixion of Jesus led to resurrection and the reassurance of new life rising from a broken body and desolation. And our very existence lends credibility to this truth. Each of us came into this world following the pain of childbirth. Yet, throughout time, humans have experienced great joy and beauty in seeing babies enter our world.
