Good people of West Parish,
It’s been a rough week. Shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH. White supremacist hate exposed to us, yet again. And our country reels in grief, horror, and fear. And still, we do nothing. Meanwhile, families remain in detention at the border. International tensions persist. The climate crisis looms. And we each live with our own personal pain, struggle and heartache.
How DO we live in these times?! Where do we find the hope to stay positive? Where is God in this mess?
This Sunday we will wonder about these questions, and reflect on the future that is promised to us. We CAN find hope. We CAN find freedom from despair. But it might not be what we expect.
