The One that is Hope

The Christmas story clearly shows that the hope of the universe is a person. Hope was what the angels sang about. Hope lay in the manger. Hope caused Mary to wonder in her heart. It was hope the shepherds came to worship. Hope was presented with gifts from the Magi who had traveled so far. [...]

Grateful

Last week we invited volunteers back to HOPE to celebrate 20 years of service in Knoxville.

Sanctity of Life: Why I March

As I prepare to make my way to Washington, D.C. this week to stand with thousands in honor of life I am reminded of why I celebrate life in the first place. What is the driving force behind your stance for life? Is it science, religion, experience, or just plain logic? I find my answer [...]
