Our Covenant

Love is the spirit of this church, and service is its law; this is our great covenant: to dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love, and to help one another.    James Vila Blake, 1894

Monthly Theme - September

Vision


Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others
~ Jonathan Swift

It takes time for the pupil of the eye to adjust to radical changes in light. Walking out into a bright, sunny day after sitting in a darkened movie theater can be blinding. Trying to see anything in the dark requires waiting for our pupils to open to their fullest. The rods at the back of the eye have to create the chemicals that allow for seeing in low light levels.

Jonathan Swift is referring to the vision of possibilities. Creating this kind of personal or church vision takes time too — gathering facts, considering possibilities, dismissing the undoable. We will explore Vision and all its different meanings, from clarity to prophecy, through sermons, song, readings, newsletters, and small group discussions.

About Our Monthly Themes

Our monthly themes express Hope Church’s openness to theological exploration. They are not an endorsement of any particular creed or belief. Instead, they provide a monthly opportunity to examine in common a religious doctrine or idea. Hope Church is a questioning community. It is a safe place to bring doubt and new ideas. This month we are exploring “formation” together. Join us!
