If you're spinning in circles of hopelessness, not making any progress toward our church-wide goal of becoming more hopeful this year, you are not alone. So what gives?
Hope can be elusive, and sometimes grasping for it, when the circumstances of real life don't cooperate, makes it dissolve. So we can either keep trying to muster up hope within ourselves, over and over, each time becoming more hopeless than the last. Or we can listen to some of Jesus' strange advice: let's humble ourselves. Because Jesus said so, and because humility breeds hope.
Our main text this week was Luke 18:9-14.
