Where is the Hope?

 - As a result of the terrorist attack on America, in a moment of time, Americans have gone from great hope, a bright future, and comfortable security to fear, insecurity, uncertaintyóeven despair:

In the wake of this tragedy, the repeated phrase on the lips of people and the words of the media is, "Things will never be the same. American lives will be changed forever."

The future is always uncertain in human terms. But there is a God, who knows the future and holds the future. He makes a promise to those who seek and follow Him. He holds a promise out for us, a promise He desires for us to accept and cling to, "For I know the plans I have for you," says God in the Bible.

How do I find that hope? In the person of Jesus Christ, who offers all who receive Him a future, even an eternity, that is certain: "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure."

But before his death, he shared his story with LIA staff member Bob Davies.
