Tuesday, First Week of Advent: Hope

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, sure and strong.” Hebrews 6:19a (NCV)

Recently, our music minister, Phil Quinn, sang a song entitled “The Anchor Holds.”  This song reminds us that as we journey through the storms of life, God is always with us, giving us hope and holding us steady, just as the anchor holds the storm-tossed ship.  The anchor was an ancient Christian symbol found on the walls of the catacombs where Christians were said to have hidden during the Roman persecution. The anchor symbolized hope in Christ for these early believers.
