Soma Events

  • Visions of Hope

    Dates: 29 Apr

    26850042_2259521644073303_6056633520809460652_o We’re starting a new series on the Book of Revelation, Visions of Hope. The aim of Visions of Hope is not just to learn how to hope but to learn how to hope when we are in danger and afraid. In the present situation of our world, false optimism is inappropriate. No one can assure us that history will have a happy end. According to all the laws of experience: it will not. We can only trust that even the end of the world hides a new beginning if we trust the God who calls into being the things that are not, and out of death creates new life. Starts April 29.
