Something ‘new’

There are new things around us all the time – we are bombarded with the ‘new’, invited to buy a new car, house, or just new ‘stuff’!

‘New’ is an important Bible word. Through the old and new testament the word ‘new’ is a theme that recurs over 200 times. We read about new wine, new grain, new songs, new covenant, new creation. At the end of the Bible we have this promise, ‘Behold I am making everything new’ (Revelation 21:5).

New Roots has used the word ‘new’ on purpose. Here Bob Callaghan, one of the founders of New Roots reflects on this word and invites us on an adventure.

Still figuring out what being a disciple might mean. Anglican priest and cyclist. One of the founders and editors of New Roots - partly as a way of hanging on in there!
