November is the bridge in the universal church’s liturgical calendar. It is the last month of the six months between Easter Time and Christmas Time. The world is in a period of increasing war and segregation, the relentless bout of the Corona Virus pandemic, and a struggling economy across the globe in which the most vulnerable are faced with
challenges after challenges. At the same time, there are reasons to celebrate life, and rebirth day by day. Especially, as we look forward to the Advent Season and Christmas with the promise of Christ’s return, the transformation of the world, and all the celebrations that come with the season.

The forgoing paragraphs highlighted some of the tension and conflict the world is facing.  Using the hymn “Will Your Anchor Hold,” Voices United 675, we will examine the theme “Holding Tension and Conflict: Will Your Anchor Hold.” One of the questions being raised in this theme is what is supporting you as you navigate the conflict and tension in yourself, your community, and the world? The hymn suggests that personal stability can only come from the right foundations. It employs a seafaring analogy as an example of its message.

Holding Tension and Conflict: Will Your Anchor Hold
