A quote from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” reminded me of a familiar passage from John 1 that is used in worship around this time of year. May the words give us hope as we transition from one year to the next.
A video of Revelation 21:1-6a for use in worship, small groups, or individually.

This is a feeling mirrored in the lectionary readings from Job and the Psalms. The novel/film “The Martian” provides an illustration to explore the experience of feeling abandoned by God.
