    Re: Sentence

    Starting anew in Christ - do you like that better?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Sentence

    I'd say '...with Christ'.

    Note that Starting afresh would have been a better title.

    To be honest, this sounds more like a slogan for the new atheists than a church. Barb_D's version sounds much better.
