Della Hughes preaching
Hope Is in Action
Join Della Hughes for a contemplation on hope. “This is a step on a journey that was reignited in 2016 when I heard about the book, Hope in the Dark. It took me months to actually read it, but the title stuck with me and kept churning in the back of my brain. Some of the questions I’ll be addressing are: What is hope? How can we have hope in circumstances that feel soul crushing? How can and why must hope propel us to act?” Special music will be provided by a vocal ensemble.
