Tonight Lauren preached from Isaiah 9:1-7. She explores the idea that in order for hope to be real, you must first understand that there is a need for hope. It is only in the context of pain, sin and suffering, that we can actually fully understand and long for the true hope and peace that can be found through Christ. Trying to manufacture joy in the “season to be jolly” doesn’t fill the longing that can only be filled by Jesus. The Bible reading and sermon start at 31:40.
