Pentecost +7 Sunday – C3

Pentecost +7 Sunday – C3

Years C
Colossians 1:1-14

A word of hope for the future is known because a word of hope about the present has been heard. To disjoint the two is to miss worthy living (joyful patience).

Down through the ages, to this very day, those with the greatest hope for tomorrow speak a word of hope about today. If we can't see a new possibility for right now our "hope" for tomorrow is delusional, not really hope at all.

It is this focus on present hope that grounds every other hope.

= = = = = = =

prayer without ceasing
calls for a patience
beyond patience
known otherwise
as joy

prayer without ceasing
calls for action
beyond results
known otherwise
as hope
