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
