Grace and New Beginnings Custom Woodworks


Tonight the Denver NBC affiliate 9News is running a story on our New Beginning's Custom Woodworks project. 

As I've shared before, Mark Koebrich's support of Bud's Warehouse has been a big reason for our ability to create hundreds of transitional employment jobs over the last 13 years for people rebuilding lives from addiction, homelessness and prison. 

I am excited to see this newest story.

As I wait to see the final product, I pray the story successfully captures the heart of the various faith ventures of Belay Enterprises. Our Christian faith is a deep part of all we do at Belay. It's why 40-50% of our program participants with significant barriers to employability successfully transition into jobs in the community compared to other organizations that see lower success rates.

I pray that New Beginnings Custom Woodworks presents an example of grace to a world where grace is sadly absent. 

And I hope that the message of our faith comes through load and clear.

It's not hard to see that our world is broken. We all need to rebuild our lives, whether it's from selfishness, greed, hopelessness, prison or addiction. 
And it's only through God's gift of Jesus that we each can experience new beginnings.
