It is an understatement to say, “WE NEED HOPE!” We live in troubled times where despair is an easy option. As Christians we can feel isolated in our own culture. We are not the first Christians to feel his way. In fact, there is a book in the New Testament, I Peter, whose purpose was to give hope to people in a fiery trial. It’s written by a man who certainly understood the ups and downs of life-Simon Peter. In his worst moments, Jesus gave him hope! In this message series, EXILES: Hope in Troubled Times, Peter will give us hope! I need it. How about you?
