People lacking hope

Jesus said that the time would come when men’s hearts will fail them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth. The autumn issue of Trumpet Sounds commented on the despair of the climate change protestors. Their fears of what is coming on the earth is leading to a ‘tsunami’ of eco anxiety among young people. This is the beginning of the hearts failing with fear which will increase as this decade progresses.

Trumpet Sounds is part of the Together for the Nation, coalition of ministries. Faced with growing anxiety the coalition has produced a short video which points people to the source of hope. Please watch the video at this link: https://youtu.be/5JYgSNvaul0. We encourage you to share this video with friends and others, assuring them that there is hope in these troubled times.
