Over the course of this book, Joshua Hayden invites readers to reflect on specific ideas, prayers, scriptures, or poems; or directs readers to look online for songs, pieces of art, or websites than can act as reflection points or markers for each individual's journey as they engage this worldview-changing idea of sacred hope.
Sacred Hope is an experiential exploration of the hope of God for our lives. Through stories, art, music, and film, this book seeks to provide a breeding ground for the conversation of hope. Students are invited to imagine the future where God is leading us, only to plummet back down into reality to investigate how we can join in God s mission to restore the world to its intended wholeness. With conversation partners as diverse as Arcade Fire, Charles Wesley, and N.T. Wright there is plenty of ground to cover and great art along the way. Sacred Hope points outside of itself to spark deep reflection and engagement with the world around us.Over the course of this book, Joshua Hayden will invite you to reflect specifically on an idea, prayer, scripture, or poem; or point you to look online for songs, pieces of art, or websites that can act as reflection points or markers for your journey as you engage with this upending idea of sacred hope.
