A lot of the time, I think we have this idea in mind of the Bible being filled will all these perfect people doing perfect things, especially in regards to Jesus' family line and what not. And all the blessings they received were because they did everything right and that earned them the outcome they were seeking. That couldn't be further from the truth. The Bible is filled with flawed, broken, imperfect people that mess up, fail, and make mistakes like the rest of us. And, just like the rest of us, they were still seen by God as beloved children, worthy of love and grace and hope and a way to start again. In this series, we'll be taking a look at all the ways we can "start again" in this new year though the stories of folks in the Bible and the ways they experienced God in the midst of their messy lives.
