sermonette: Audacity of Hope

Mike Ford (1955-2021)
Given 26-Apr-08; Sermon #879Bs; 19 minutes

Description: (hide)

Mike Ford, reflecting on the sermon of Senator Obama's pastor, Jeremiah Wright, in which he used the expression, the "audacity of hope" demonstrates that charismatic speakers can often distort scripture or take it hopelessly out of context. Wright suggested that Hannah had the audacity to make the request when there was no visible evidence that it would ever happen. Much of Jeremiah Wright's message is true and harmless, but other segments are vile, filled with profanity and partisan politics, creating political wish lists. Hope, in the biblical sense, rests on faith of future inheritance. The "audacity of hope" implies that there is no reason to hope, but the true reason to hope consists of God's promises and our faith that these promises are rock solid.
