According to hopegathering.com:
“HOPE is a gathering designed for the women of New York City, women from all walks of life who long to experience God’s hope in their lives and in their city.
“Through worship, prayer, teaching, and discussion we will set our eyes on Jesus and seek to join God in bringing His hope to our world.
“Our lives and our city are often full of sorrow, disappointment, injustice, pain, and fear. All of these situations in our own life and in the world around us, often leave us feeling hopeless. And even on ‘good days’ when the sun is shining and we long to bring hope to others, we can often feel ill-equipped and overwhelmed by all of the people and situations that need help and hope.
