The Gift of Hope || guest blog by Connie Milchling

I love our mission statement, “Living Word is a grace-filled community where the messiness of life, the message of hope, and the beauty of Jesus converge.” At times I am in conversation with someone and feel the weight of how there’s not much we can do with the “mess.” It’s especially difficult when it comes to other people’s bad choices encroaching onto our lives. Sometimes they are burdened by the relentless news of unsettledness and uncertainty in the world or are simply worn down by the day in and day out struggles of life.

And yet there is always hope!

But just what is the message of hope and how can we cultivate it in our lives?

For 4 weeks this summer we will be looking at this consideration as we explore:

  • What do we do when hope is lost?
  • Where is hope found?
  • Why is hope needed?
  • How is hope sustained?

This brand new mid-size community will have live teaching and small-group discussion. We know summer gets full with fun and activities, so we are offering it for your convenience on Monday evenings, 6:30–8:00 pm or Wednesday mornings, 9:30–11:00 am starting July 9. This is open to anyone who would like to dig into God’s Word and discover his very precious gift of hope.
