What does it mean to have hope? We live in a time when it seems there is more hurt, pain and disappointment - in our lives, in our news feed - than stories, words or experiences of hope. So where do we find hope in the midst of all the brokenness and chaos that seem to rule the world? Does the good news of "God with us" change how we navigate the world we live in; does it offer us hope that can sustain us? Join us Sunday as we explore what it means to have Expectant Hope.
There are some gifts that everyone needs but no one gets too excited about. Instead of the gift that you had been hoping for, you find socks and underwear - a gift that you really need, but it is not the one you were hoping for. This is true of the first Christmas, because Jesus is the gift that everyone needs, but He wasn't the gift that everyone wanted.
