February 17, 2019: Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Preaching for the Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Jennifer Owens-Jofré Preaches offers a reflection on hope. "How might we practice hope in the face of disheartening circumstances?," she asks.
For her, practicing hope is bound up in our work to partner with God in bringing about the Kin-dom here and now: "Let us become a people of radical Christian hope. Let us place our faith in the Kin-dom that is to come. Let us embrace our charge to partner with God in bringing that Kin-dom about, in the here and now."
Jennifer Owens-Jofré recently completed her doctoral studies at Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA. Currently, she serves as Visiting Assistant Professor of Constructive Theology at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary through a Postdoctoral Fellowship with the Louisville Institute.
