02.09.14 Worship Confessional

minimalwall-hope-10-78-1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, wehave peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. (Romans 5:1-5)

Yesterday in our gathering we focused on the power of hope. Leaning into NT Wright’s work, Surprised by Hope, I raised three questions:

  1. Is there hope for change, rescue, transformation, and new possibilities within the world in the present?
  2. How can I find hope in difficult times?
  3. What is the ultimate source of hope?

The approach one takes to answering these questions creates a life-long trajectory. I would love to hear your thoughts.

Here is our complete worship flow:

  • Praise the Invisible (Daniel Bastha)
