Mel Thomson – Expect the Unexpected: Carriers of Hope I 03.12.’23

In “Carriers of Hope – Expect the Unexpected,” we explore the profound privilege of hosting God’s presence in our lives. Through the remarkable stories of Elizabeth and Mary, who were unexpectedly touched by the Holy Spirit, we challenge the limitations of our human thinking. The talk emphasizes the nonlinear and unpredictable nature of God’s ways, encouraging us to be keenly aware of His presence in every aspect of our lives.

As we delve into the beginning chapters of Luke, encountering angelic appearances to Zacharias and Mary, we witness their divine selection as carriers of hope. Elizabeth’s miraculous conception in her old age and Mary’s unexpected role as the mother of Jesus underscore the extraordinary ways in which God works. The talk closes with an invitation for listeners to reflect on their sense of hope and to align more closely with God’s plans, embracing a journey of unexpected blessings and a renewed faith.
