10 million Americans will consider killing themselves in the upcoming year. That’s just not acceptable. So today, Dr. Matthew Sleeth, a former emergency room physician and chief of a hospital medical staff joins the team to share about his book, Hope Always, How to Be A Force for Life in a Culture of Suicide. We want to equip you today to bring hope to the hopeless. First Matthew shares his journey from atheism to Jesus.
He talks about how his book will equip us to bring hope. Also, the ancient, evil origins of suicide. What do we say to those who are suicidal? If you’re feeling hopeless, Matthew has a message for you! The beauty out of the ugliness of an attempted suicide. Also, the power of listening. Next why are so many thinking of ending it all? And finally creating a safe place in our churches for the hopeless to open up. Please share this, might save a life!
