Harmony & Hope

In a world of divisions we hope for harmony. Our hope is grounded in God. We've been welcomed by Christ. We are challenged by Christ to welcome one another as well as "the stranger" so that all may know God's forgiveness and care. Harmony comes with knowing God.

Sunday Scriptures for Dec. 8:

What's Advent all about?

                                                      Hope is the sparkle in a child’s eyes as she cups her hands around a bowl of warm rice and beans.
                                                      Hope is a fresh drop of clean well water that quenches the thirst of a woman 
                                                      who learned an economic trade instead of spending her entire day walking to fetch water.
                                                      Hope is an indigenous leader’s confident stance as he walks over the dirt threshold of his local church. 
                                                      He’s just completed theological training and he feels better equipped to lead his faith community.
                                                      Gift of Hope is a tangible way to provide basic needs, education, and more 
                                                      to people around the world who need it most.
                                                      Your gift empowers individuals and families to be self-sufficient. 
                                                      That means your gift has long-term impact. 


The Pledge:
While interacting with members of my own faith, or ethnic, or gender community, or with others, if I hear hateful comments from anyone about members of any other community, I pledge to stand up for the other and speak up to challenge bigotry in any form.
