Hope Found in the Sewers

Hope Found in the Sewers

My naïve American pragmatism had no conceptual space to piece together this man’s story. And I thought I knew brokenness!

Developing a Theology of Hope

Developing a Theology of Hope

This Advent hope it not predicated on our wishful thinking or naivety. Advent hope is also not something abstract or distant. This hope is founded on the reality of Jesus: his life and work as seen in the first Advent, the promise of his second Advent, and the new reality that creates to furnish hope in our lives today. It is a hope that matters today and impacts today.
