A Hope-Filled Life – How a Two -World Perspective Calms our Deepest Fears
What’s the source of our fears? Do they not most often spring from our uneasiness regarding the future? We watch as our world descends into violence and wonder, “What’s next?” At church, the vague references to eternal life or heaven fail to stir our hearts or relieve worries about our everyday lives or the world around us. We need so much more than bland assurances of the “sweet by and by,” which do little to relieve our apprehensions of what might be ahead for us in a chaotic and violent world.
"A Hope-Filled Life" shows how the scriptural specifics of eternity calm our anxieties and bring healing to the deepest wounds of our hearts.
