For me, another January 1st begs the question: Is “new” really possible? New in the sense of a genuinely a clean slate, a fresh start, even new heart or a new creation?
I want to say yes, but the combination of my awareness of a finite universe, my limited capacities and many failed “resolutions” leave me wondering. Perhaps the past will always have a hold on the future.
In this episode we take on the biblical hope of new creation, particularly as it relates to the human self (to me). And I do my best to make the case that humans really can be “born again.”
