One of the gifts that God gives his people is hope. Hope is not simply a wish that things will turn out well. It is the conviction that God calls each one of us into a new way of living that will have no end – that the things we say and do have a meaning that not even death can destroy.
This Sunday we will be hearing a reading from the Bible where Christians are encouraged to be prepared to give the reason for the hope they have. As we receive this encouragement, we will consider some of the reasons for the hope that we have, and we will think through the ways that God gives us hope even in the face of great difficulties.
This Sunday we will meet at 10:00am for a service with Holy Communion. The Sunday school will meet at about 10:45am.
God’s peace to you,
Fraser Pearce, Pastor
