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.

Welcoming Hope

A welcoming message from Pastor Jay
</p

To Those Who Hope,

 

It was one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen; it was the Topkapi palace and its environs  in Turkey. It is sometimes
forgotten, that the Ottoman/Turkish Empire thought of itself as the successor to the great Roman Empire, and so tried to present 
itself with the similar grandeur. There were so many things I took in (actually some I shouldn’t have as a Turkish guard pointed to
a “No Photographs” sign as I unfortunately snapped a picture simultaneously), but there was one that has stuck with me. Lent is 
a time to let go of those things/rocks that God has asked us not to carry any longer; it is also a time to be honest about ourselves. 
Come this Sunday as we gather to hear another word of “pastoral” advice from Paul’s letter to those who gather at Rome…simple 
and to the point. Advice even an emperor sought to keep. ALL ARE WELCOME!
  

Pastor J
