“When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope.” -- Pittacus Lore  Without hope we cannot act to change something.  If we want to move from surviving trauma into thriving lives, hope must be within sight.  Where there is no hope, there will be no transformation, only despair.  Hope is only as good as the thing that we put our hope in.  Hope is more than wishful thinking, it is something we choose to believe in because it is based on promise and a reason for our hopeful vision.   Rob Patterson, Vicar of Redeemer Anglican Church, says that “If our hope is sure then hope transcends our circumstances.  We no longer have to allow our circumstances to dictate our well-being.  No amount of hardship or suffering can crush it.”   Join us Saturday, June 22 on Beyond Abuse Radio for a discussion on the role that hope plays in healing from trauma and the difference between hope and magical thinking.
Rob Patterson has led musical worship since 1995.  He has served as a pastor since 2004.  In 2012 Rob helped found Redeemer Anglican Church in Santa Cruz, California where he currently serves as Vicar.  Rob’s passion is leading people into a genuine response of worship in light of who God is and what he’s done.  Rob has recorded two worship albums.  The latest of which, Found, was released in January of 2009.  Rob has been married to his wife Julie since 2001.  They have two daughters, Lyric and Story, and another baby on the way!
