Hope Poem

God’s hope can awaken a despairing and broken heart and world.

Moving spoken word that unpacks our certain hope in God. Infinitely more powerful than our wishes and dreams, God’s hope welcomes outsiders in and provides a secure foundation for weary souls.

As we prepare to exit lockdown, we can look forward to the hope of slowly returning to ‘normality’, but also the greater hope of a redeemed and renewed world at the end of time, made certain by Jesus’ resurrection.
