How much is one life lost but found for eternity worth?
God of Hope is searching the global internet for “persons of peace” (Luke 10:6) to join the Hope Circle. “Persons of peace” bring honor to the name of Jesus by faithfully sharing in a gentle and respectful way the testimony of Jesus that there is but one true God and helping someone experience the peace of having Jesus in their lives, being reconciled with God and having the hope of eternal life.
Be a Hope Circle “person of peace.” Pray for, listen to and walk with one non-religious family member, friend or acquaintance who is in crisis, doesn’t know God is real or there is life after death and tell them stories about Jesus, who he is, what he did, why it matters and why you believe.
Today's Stop and ThinkSTOP AND THINK - When you forgive, anxiety gets better; depression gets better. You have more hope. (Everett Worthington, psychologist and professor)
Many people today seem to be anxious. And that often leads to depression. Worthington suggests that one of the causes of anxiety may be an unforgiving spirit. Someone has been hurt so deeply that he or she simply can’t get over it and can’t forgive the offender. Learning to forgive will relieve the anxiety, avoid depression, and restore lost hope.
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other (Ephesians 4:32).For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you (Matthew 6:14).
"God of Hope will reach many souls and make a huge difference in believer's and non-believers' lives. I've been involved in many Christian projects: this is the best one yet!"

"God of Hope is a compelling series of stories that bear witness to the presence and power of God, who is our hope. The creative retelling of the biblical story is historically accurate and theologically faithful."
