Church + Marginalized Voices = Hope

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

Hope arises when I hear the voices of those who had previously been silenced or marginalized cry out from the depths.

And young voices that will not be suppressed by the dysfunctional narratives of our past, but speak to the hope of the future.
