Messages of hope

  • All Alone

    “I think that all of us move into and out of loneliness. Some people tragically find themselves all alone. None of us were meant for that.”

    Loneliness isn’t a feeling restricted to people who are single. It can affect anyone. Click here to listen to James Winderlich talk about how we can feel alone and unconnected, even when we’re surrounded by people.

  • Loneliness

    Do you sometimes look at the people around you and think “I wish I could be like them?” It can cause us to focus on what we don’t do, and don’t have, and that can make us feel lonely, even if we’re surrounded by people who love us. Click here to listen this week as John Henderson talks about loneliness, and that it’s cure lies outside ourselves.

  • Gone Home

    “We were in this little plane, caught in a thunderstorm and the pilot said – I’m sorry guys, we’re not going make it, we’re gonna go down - and man, that makes you think about living and dying!”
