New Series: Running Scared

New Series: Running Scared

Starting January 14 2018 Island of Hope will begin a new series called, “Running Scared”.

The world is constantly trying to scare people.  News media use fear to attract attention to their broadcasts.  Advertisers prey on our fears to motivate us to buy the latest thing.  If you are a parent, it seems almost an exercise in controlled terror, trying not to think about everything that might harm your child, their growth, their success… or even simply hold them back from success.   If you are single, you may fear never finding “the one”.  If you are divorced, you may fear never finding anyone else.   If you are sick, you may fear never recovering… if you are healthy you may fear losing your health.  If you are young you may fear getting old.  Fears drive us all.

But should they?  Is that all there is to life… running scared?  God says no, life isn’t about fear, and it shouldn’t be about fear.  We are going to look to the Lord for instruction on how to live without fear in today’s complicated, scary world.  Starting January 14, 11 am at the Island of Hope.  Join us!
