"Hope"
by Edward Burne-Jones
P O N D E R
Hope is the title of the stained glass to the right of the pulpit in the sanctuary.  The image is based on a painting by Edward Burne-Jones who painted it after the death of a dear friend.  It is also one of a triad of paintings on the Christian virtues of faith, hope, and charity.  What about Burne-Jones' painting is hopeful?  Why do you think it was chosen to be in our sanctuary?

P R A Y

Gracious God, sometimes we feel chained by the difficulties of our lives.  Help us to set our gaze on you and to remember that you are a God who keeps your promises.  Amen.
