Wailing Wall

There is no question that this world is messed up. You don't have to look far to see hurt, oppression, hunger, loneliness....these are the things that break God's heart.

We are a group of people who refuse to sit safe in our 'church cocoon' while the world around us suffers. God has given us the privilege and responsibility to act on his behalf and help the hurting and fight injustice we see around us.

This weekend we will have three meaningful gatherings at New Hope. (Parents, please bring your school aged kids in the main room to share in these gatherings - there will be nursery and preschool classes as usual).

For months we've made use of the Wailing Wall to post issues, situations, needs that break our heart and break the heart of Jesus. We will take some time this weekend to refresh the wall and offer these needs and offer ourselves to Jesus. I'm so thankful to be a part of a group of people who desire to make a difference in this world.
