Hope in the Time of COVID, Part 02 - What We Know for Sure

One of the hardest parts of enduring this crisis is coping with so much uncertainty: How long will it last? Who will be affected? What about the economy? Will there be a vaccine? Who should I trust for information...? The questions can be dizzying and tempt us in some moments to grasp at any hope offered, and at others, to nearly abandon hope.

In this episode, we look at the biblical promises of hope - what God does (and does not) assure to his people - so as to ground ourselves in on the bedrock of truth and faith. It is in proper, nuanced hope that we find both comfort in our suffering and creative energy to bring transformation to our world.

The biblical passage referenced in this sermon is: 

The "lemonade stand" photo was taken by professional photographer and Canvas family member Irene Bowers (thanks, Irene!).

This sermon was preached on March 22, 2020 at Canvas Presbyterian Church (Irvine, CA). If you'd like to see the whole worship service, you can find it here. Or check out the Canvas Vimeo page for our video archive.
