Episode 17 — Advent: Real Hope in Dark Times

December 22, 2020
preached by
Pastor Jon Needham

During this episode of B-Sides, Pastor Jon and Pastor Rusten discuss the Advent theme of "Hope." In what has been an incredibly disorienting year, hope has been in high demand. A pandemic, lockdowns, economic turmoil, and future uncertainty have all exposed our fragility. How does the hope of Christmas speak into this situation? What kind of hope and future does the Christian story proclaim to this world? How does this hope confront our fears? How does this hope show up in the way that we live? If you have any questions you would like us to address in future episodes go to slido.com and put in the code coramdeo.
