    We learn from the Disciples that no matter how deep our betrayal we may all begin again. Resurrection took place at sunrise on the first day, the day of creation and after resurrection Jesus returned to Galilee – back to the beginning. If you want a new beginning meet Jesus wherever you are. He will be waiting. Just follow where he leads….
