The Optimism of Grace in Pessimistic Times
Date: July 26, 2017 at 2PM CST
It is natural for us to walk by sight, not by faith. When times are confusing or difficult, people find it easy to lose heart. But Paul reminds the Corinthians, "Therefore, we do not grow weary, but even if our outward person is decaying, our inner person is being renewed day by day." In this webinar, we will discuss how John Wesley's "optimism of grace" helps us navigate challenging times and gives us hope that God is always doing new things, always redeeming even "this present darkness" toward God's Kingdom of Light.
