#AdventBookClub: Day 31: Endings


We reach the end of 2013 today… and Maggi Dawn starts to deal with the topic of endings – how do books end, how do the 66 different books of the Bible end, particularly how does Mark’s gospel end?

The resurrection, rather than being tied to the time and place of the story, is left as an open book to the reader, who, rather than commemorating or disputing a moment in history, is given the chance to discover the reality of resurrection in their own experience.

As we head towards 2014, may you discover much of excellence in the year ahead!
