When our denomination, The Evangelical Covenant Church, asked me to contribute a week’s worth of devotions to the Spring issue of The Covenant Home Altar, I said, “Sure thing!” Then, when I found out that the good peeps at Covenant Publications decided to make the devotions available online for the six weeks of Lent, I said, “Suh-weet.”

This means that starting today you can follow along with me every day until Saturday by going here or by adding Home Altar to your phone.

I was given the theme of hope to stick with for the week, so up first: Psalm 130: 1-4 and a reminder that hopelessness is not part and parcel of our stories–not with Jesus on the water. Take a peek:
