For years, I have been appreciative of The Work of the People, a collective of beautifully-spirited folks who labour to produce films and resources that might bless the church.
The piece below features Brian Zahnd, speaking on the theme of “Learning How to Hope”. (I purchased this video for use in our Small Groups and have posted it for ease of use. If you appreciate it, please feel free — nudged — to support WOTP with a donation or subscription.)
Truth be told, I’m blessed simply by the title of of this video. It suggests that hope is a skill to be learned, that our default tendencies bend toward fear or worry or despair, but that the Master who disciples us is intent on leading us in a better way. Hope can be learned, so let’s pay attention.
