We’ve just come out of a troubled year. Australian Wildfires, The COVID 19 Pandemic, and, once again, the insidious nature of racism revealing itself. It felt like our country and ourselves were tearing at the seams (and I have written all of this months before the election!). How do we move through times like these? With hope. We will spend the first seven weeks of 2021 reflecting on this idea, one that is often misunderstood, so we can learn to wrap our arms around the full experience that life is. Trusting that God wastes nothing, and we can choose … hope.
