An Exhibit of Hope

Exhibition DATES: March 2 - April 9, 2017

The Gallery at W83 Ministry Center

We often use the word hope with uncertainty. Merriam-Webster defines to hope as “to want something to happen or to be true and think that it could happen or be true.” The Biblical concept of hope, however, is defined with a certainty we lack. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance of what we do not see.” Confidence and assurance stand in stark contrast with want and think.
