Released in 1995, the movie Outbreak was science fiction. Back then, the possibility that a global pandemic would actually become reality seemed unimaginable. Today's message touches on the fact that it's the unimaginable that actually gives us hope.

Hamilton's - "It's Quiet Uptown"

Commonly known by the name Unimaginable, this link takes you to the song that helped inspire todays message.

GROWTH GROUP / PERSONAL REFLECTION QUESTIONS
1. The COVID-19 pandemic has been unimaginable. Take a deep breath. Without judgement, how many things have happened and are happening, that you could have never imagined? What are they? Have you allowed yourself to mourn these changes (losses) and lament them to God? If not, why not? How might you do so?
2. Do you resonate with creation being unimaginable? Why or why not?
3. Do you resonate with the Passover/Exodus being unimaginable? Why or why not?
4. Do you resonate with Jesus' resurrection being unimaginable? Why or why not?
5. If God is in the business of the unimaginable, what does this say about us? If God is in the business of the unimaginable, how might this give you hope today?
6. What might it look like to be an ambassador of hope?
Next Steps:
- Memorize Ephesians 3:30
- Allow yourself to mourn and lament the changes that have come with COVID-19.
- Look for God given reasons for hope and, when the opportunity presents itself, express them.
