A Christian ministry is working on a new course aimed at inspiring hope through the ups and downs of life.
Hope Explored is an initiative of Christianity Explored and is currently being piloted by several churches before a full-scale launch next year.
Christianity Explored co-author Rico Tice says modern secularism is stripping people of hope.
He told Christian Today, a lack of hope is one of the driving forces behind the high rates of suicide, particularly among young men.
Hope Explored is being designed for use immediately after Christmas and Easter, and its themes include Mighty God, Prince of Peace, and Everlasting Father.
The three-week course is inspired by the promise of a Wonderful Counsellor in Isaiah 9:6 as fulfilled by Jesus Christ.
It’s hoped the course will act as a gateway to further study with Christianity Explored.
