A Thought: Hope. My message today is on Hope. It is for the future we draw wisdom, strength and faith from our past. As we honor our graduating Seniors today, we have hope they will brighten our future as they brighten the present and the past. Much of their strength they possess has come from the role the Church has played in their lives—their Sunday school teachers, youth leaders, staff and congregation. We are about to release them into the world on their own, and are confident they will do just fine! To whom do you need to give prayers of Hope? It is one of the greatest Gifts you can give.
