We have a lot of discussion and interaction during our sermons, which is often cut from the recording.

John: Always Hope ()

Kurt Ingram, May 28, 2017
Part of the Gospel Of John series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Memorial Day is about remembering. Remembering that our lives are built on the blood and sacrifice of those who have gone before us. Remembering that we were handed a legacy that hold both good and evil. And that as we remember, we must learn to confront the evil of our own story, our own history, while celebrating the good.

And the question to us, in light of the story we find ourselves in, is about hope. Is our hope in returning to something that was? Or is our hope in fighting to conserve what is? Or is our hope in a future yet unknown?

Our remembering is about turning from the darkness, learning from our past, and finding a way to go further up and further in as God unfolds his beautiful story in our world.

Peter was stuck in this moment, losing hope, having a painfully fresh memory of denying Jesus. And yet here is Jesus, dealing truthfully with his past, offering hope in his present, and pointing him to something deep and meaningful in his future. And this is the message we want to hear from Jesus this weekend, that there is always Hope!
