The Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell, is sharing short reflections throughout January 2021 on the theme, ‘Our Hope is Found’ as the country continues to combat the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
His reflections will include a prayer or a poem, and the first of this nine-part series will be released on New Year's Day, the 1st January.
Archbishop Stephen said, “2020 has been an incredibly hard year for everyone, and it is going to be a long time before we begin to feel some semblance of normality return. We all need hope, and I believe that our hope is found in the person of Jesus Christ. Knowing God through him brings life, peace, and hope that no matter what happens he is with us. As people listen to the reflections I pray they can see that as we trust in God and seek to follow him, we can have a peace which is beyond our understanding and a hope that is sure and steadfast for what is to come.”
