Welcome to Hope Community

 

 

“… if you do not interrupt your life with convictions of the death to come, then neither shall your death, when it comes, be interrupted by life.” Walter Wangerin Jr.

 

As we continue our journey through the Gospel of John, we also continue our journey towards Easter. The season of Lent in the church is a season marked by contrast: light and dark, sin and forgiveness, disappointment and hope, hurt and healing, compassion and injustice… life and death. May our eyes continued to be opened to the Jesus of John’s gospel, that in “seeing” him more fully the empty spaces of our lives might be filled by Him with life.
