Hope's Welcoming Statement

Hope strives to be a safe haven for God's unconditional love.  Every person is invited and encouraged to participate in all Hope activities and roles, including membership and leadership.  In this world most human conflict and separation are caused by differences, like ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, economic status, political positions and more. Hope embraces diversity and welcomes all who come through our doors, without exception.

Hope's Happenings

To those who can be Hope,

There are times in everyone's life when we feel far away from our home.  I feel that way sometimes.  I miss the Santa Cruz beaches, the wharfs at San Francisco, and the brown rolling hills of Palo Alto (San Jose).  The older we get, the further we can also feel from the innocence and simplicity of who we were when we first started off.  There is always someone, in our past, who still seeks to speak to us today... who packaged it up with some ice cream, or gave it to us with a hug... a grandparent, an elderly friend, a Sunday school teacher, a community/assembly... someone who told us to keep certain things as priorities to make it in this life.  "Stay out of trouble." "Keep your eye on what's important.” "Stay true to yourself.”  These words were anchor's for our identity as we set out, much like a country mouse, into a "city" world.  In our passage this Sunday (1 Tim 6:6ff) Timothy is given some very frank advice we all probably have heard... and then the statement "remember"... "Remember when you were given these words"... "Remember when you said them too amongst us"... "Remember Christ says them with you"... "Remember who you are."  Come by this Sunday as we seek to remember together and take hold of those things once again that hold us fast.

AND

In this Political Season (how many weeks left now?), I will be starting a class after worship entitled, The Politics of Jesus.  Did Jesus have a politic?  Are we able to follow it?  I know; interested... but maybe a little concerned at what I might say?  You are wise J.  I invite you to come together to hear the words of Jesus on another "hill of Hope"... The Sermon on the "hill" or "mount."  Looking forward to studying it with you.

Peace,

Pastor Jay
