Whew, fam! We are officially wrapping up this year of surprises and disappointments. Can I tell you something? You still have reason to let hope fill your heart. The pandemic, job loss, racial disparities, gender inequalities, family drama, illnesses, loss of loved ones, uncertainties, and all that chaos has nothing on a hope-filled heart that knows its source.
I spoke during the LFM service on 11/29/2020 about just that. The audio is low at the beginning so you may need to adjust your volume accordingly.
Bible references: Romans 15:13 // Isaiah 8 + 9 // Isaiah 61 // Luke 2:38 // Luke 4:18-19
