Hope

Hope. It's different than optimism. That may seem like a distinction without much of a difference, but on that score I beg to disagree. Optimism, you see, is the belief that things will always get better, circumstances will naturally improve, present challenges will eventually pass, and so are not to be worried about.

Money, Mission, and Media: Free Event September 27

At the forefront of these changes are questions about stewardship, mission, and the ever-evolving world of social media and technology. What does stewardship mean and look like in the midst of our present realities? How can we leverage technology and new media as a means of grace and platforms to bear witness to the good news of Jesus Christ? Don’t miss the unique conversation with our featured presenters Adam Copeland, Mihee Kim-Kort, Keith Anderson, and fellow Philadelphia-area ministry practitioners as we explore these questions, gain insight, and develop strategies for supporting our mission and ministries today.
