HOPE in the Journey…Pass It On October 8, 2021
It was almost predictable. People of all stripes are readily accepting the HOPE booklet.
Let me start from the beginning.
Mars Hill friend, author and creator of the HOPE booklet, Paul Cammilleri, was passionate about producing an encouraging booklet that could be used to give hope to believers who were struggling and carrying burdens of all kinds. Christians are not immune from hurts, disappointments, and trials…we all know that by experience. We also know that Christ cares about our challenges that can often lead to emotional and physical distress. Jesus offers HOPE. We can have victory.
The HOPE booklet was created primarily for the believer, however God has opened countless doors for the sharing of this attractive and very effective resource with those without Christ as well.
In my travels over the last few months, I have had great opportunity to share these booklets with cashiers in stores, fast food drive thru attendants, medical workers, my auto mechanic, casual coffee drinkers at outside tables, and others. All have received them graciously, some eagerly.
This colorful, easy to read tool is a delight to offer to those without hope, unbelievers who don’t know where to look in life’s devastating encounters as well as minor “bumps in the road”. Though it does not specifically give the plan of salvation, such as the Four Spiritual Laws or the Roman’s Road, it directs people to look to the Lord for comfort. It answers the cry for help, clearly rendered in the first few pages of the publication, by graciously, but effectively, pointing the reader to the infallible author of true hope, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Mars Hill Network is making these booklets available at no cost other than asking one to consider our shipping fee. If you would like a supply of HOPE booklets for your personal witness, or for your church, small group, or para-church ministry, contact our office here at Mars Hill during normal business hours.
We’re blessed here at Mars Hill to offer “HOPE in the Journey”. Let’s pass it on!
“… but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
