Journey to Hope

Where do you find hope?

It is an interesting question, and one that starts an online Bible study produced by rethinkchurch.org.  “A Journey to Hope” is a seven-week look at where hope can be found.  Hope can be found in the most unlikely of places.  In the midst of brokenness and disorder, hope can emerge.  Like a lone sprout emerging from dry, cracked ground, hope defies the odds.

For the next few weeks, I am going to follow this study as it looks at relationships, self-esteem, work, money, suffering, and ends with hope.  The study will include questions for reflection and discussion, video presentations and Biblical commentary.  I’m looking forward to taking this journey, and I invite you to take it with me.

The introduction of the study can be found here.  It poses another question: “Is it possible for something on the horizon to transform your life now?”  As you look out into the horizon, what do you see?  As you think about hope, I offer you this quote from Laura Rossbert, one of the online guides of the journey:

“Hope is rooted in the foundation that God prepares the way for us…  There is a Spirit that is at work in our world that is making a difference with us… It is knowing that it is not all up to me.”  Laura Rossbert
