December Worship Theme: Hope
Barbara Kingsolver writes, “The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what to hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.” Some of us struggle to find hope. Some of us take hope for granted. Hope is what sends a student to school, an addict to a 12-step program, an activist out into the street. Theologian Julie Neraas writes, “While hope is a strengthening force, it also lays a person open to the vulnerabilities of love, desire, expectation, disappointment, loss.” This month we wrestle with hope, what to hope for, with all its complexity, and how to live under its roof.
