Big Hope in The Age of Melancholy
On Sunday Pastor Ruttan delivered the final installment of the Apprenticeship 2.0 series, a message about “Big Hope”.
The idea was that when we know what will happen at the end of time, this has a positive impact on our lives in the here and now. We know that all suffering/problems are temporary, and this motivates and encourages us to work toward the greater goal which we know is coming.
A key quote was from John Leith – he said that Christians differ from other people not always in what happens to them, but that they respond in faith, hope and love. Jesus himself shows us how he always responds to the situations around him with hope, even when he’s dealing with difficult circumstances.
Have a listen – you will be glad you did!
