Speaker: Intern Pastor Miriam Hanson

Budding Hope

Job offers us a unique style of scripture this week: poetry. Through his lyrical words, he paints a picture of new life and hope, even in the midst of suffering. How can Job hold this tension of hope and suffering, death and new life? Listen as Intern Pastor Miriam considers how we too can find hope amidst the unexpected tensions of life.

Accompanying Scripture:
Job 14:7-15, 19:23-27, Luke 21: 29-33
