Reorientation: From Doubt to Hope

Throughout our series we have journeyed through the lows of doubt, insecurity and denial while embracing the high of hope through redemption and renewed opportunities. This week we are reminded of life and love abundant no matter the course our journeys may take - even when we don’t quite understand the path laid before us. We will visit the place of uncertainty with Mary in her question of “How? How can this be…?” 
This Sunday in which we celebrate our mother figures may our minds, souls and bodies be attuned to the truth in faithfully trusting that the God of the Resurrection is there to listen and hear our voice - whether that voice is one of despair, denial or doubt or whether that voice is one of joy, excitement and hope. Let us worship and celebrate knowing we are heard and rejoice in knowing we are not alone in this life’s journey as we trust in the Son of Mary, our Risen Jesus. 
The scripture this Sunday come from Luke 1:34
