Today Rev. Terri Hoard Owens speaks to the church from scripture and our theological tradition about hope in the face of ongoing tragedy, violence and pandemic.
“Paul reminds us un Romans 5 that we have hope because of Jesus Christ…I simply don’t believe that we celebrate suffering or that suffering sanctifies us in any particular way. I believe that the power of our hope comes in understanding and recognizing that the love of God is revealed through Jesus Christ and that the power we have through the Holy Spirit helps us to overcome and survive and to transform the world.” -Rev. Terri Hord Owens
