Discouragement about the present ranks pretty high in America right now; presidential politics leave most of us wondering. Some of you have shared your fears with me about the future of our country; others have recalled the by-gone days of when life was different. That posture also gets reflected in other areas; some wonder about the future of our city and county. Still others reflect on the future of our church and consider what is beyond the seeable horizon. This series from Hebrews 11 speaks to all of us, because if God could help those Old Testament heroes and heroines, if God could sustain those First Century professing Christians in the Roman Empire, then God can also do the same for us.
