Table Talk: Hope Week

This Week In Lightgliders: 
Hope Week

We are in the midst of learning about the Five Lightglider Values. The theme verses for this Unit are found in Matthew 7:17-18 (NLT)

 "A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can't produce bad fruit and a bad tree can't produce good fruit."

This week we are learning about the Lightglider value of hope. To live with hope means to believe that the future will get brighter no matter what. We want kids to know that our hope comes from the resurrection of Jesus and His promise to return to restore God's kingdom. We can look forward to a day with no more pain, suffering and sadness. The great thing about living with hope is that it can spread to others as we live, serve and love one another! We want to see kids living with hope because, no matter how hard life gets, there is a reason to look forward to the future ahead.  Because of Jesus, the future will get brighter!

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say.
~II Thessalonians 2:16-17 (NLT)
