Church + God’s faithfulness = Hope

When I look at the church, what gives me hope?

The church plus God’s faithfulness give me hope. As I look at the story of God, and see the ways that God works for justice, particularly on behalf of the vulnerable, that gives me hope. I trust and implore God to be true to God’s character…kind, compassionate, able and just. And that gives me hope and helps me hope for the church.
