I am putting together my first sermon series for University right now and I am really looking forward to preaching it the last three weeks in June. I need some help though.
I am preaching on "Hope in the Midst of Change" and I would love to share some stories from the real world...not just my stories, but your stories as well. I will spend the first week talking about Jesus as the "hope of your life". I will talk about leadership as the "hope of the church" during week 2. And I will finish by declaring the local church...when it is working right as the "hope of the world (HT: Brad Powell).
What stories do you have about:
1) Christ giving you hope to your life?
2) Leadership infusing hope into your church?
3) The local church working right to inspire hope in the world?
