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. My students at Stateville Correctional Center, who despite their incarceration are seeking the wisdom of the LORD. BIPOC and WOC voices that speak truth to a broken reality. And young voices that will not be suppressed by the dysfunctional narratives of our past, but speak to the hope of the future.
