Normally when adults hope, we’re hoping that things will go back to how they used to be, or at least won’t get worse – ‘I hope my friend in hospital gets better’. Trust is a related idea – we tend to trust based on past experience. But John the Baptist had a message of new hope – he called people to change their lives because they could trust God with the future.

Listen to the sermon preached by the Revd Bryce Amner on Sunday 10 December 2017.

The scripture reading is Mark 1:1–8.
