What if we looked at challenging times and indecision by focusing more on hope than despair? Uncertainty is a part of life. It’s not always a bad thing – uncertainty can create an openness, opportunity for action, creative problem-solving, and a full participation in life. How do we learn to want to “stay in the game” and help participate in whatever the outcome? In this weeks Pulpit To Pew, Reverend Dean Beverly Gibson and Johnny Gwin discuss the richness and depth of The Passion, having faith in uncertainty, embracing hope over despair, and actively participating in scripture and mysteries during Holy Week (Christian’s March Madness.)
