New Creation: A Christian Publication
Looking Back on 2022 and What the Writers at New Creation Had to Say
A selection of stories & poems that will inspire you to think in a new way!
New Creation began in February 2022, almost one year now. It’s been a great experience for me to run this publication.
I never imagined I’d ever have an opportunity like this. It’s been a real joy.
But, I owe it all to you; the writers, readers, Medium, and of course, God.
Doing the work of God is especially nice when it’s something we enjoy. I enjoy all aspects of running this publication.
But you may have noticed, I am not pushing it to grow fast. That’s partly because I don’t have the time and partly because I don’t see the rush.
Medium is not going to vanish, and I’ll always have a laptop and phone nearby, so I am confident that New Creation will continue to grow, but at its own pace.
Below is a list of some pieces we received in 2022.
I read them all and found pearls of wisdom in each and every one.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did…(And this time, I’ve included a few of my own.:))
