Nearly everyone has someone in their circle of acquaintances who strugglesan out-of-control friend or relative whose habits or relationships are in chaos. Is there any hope, or is he or she doomed to self-destruction?
Pastors Rob Cowles and Matt Roberts say God is equal to the challenge! New beginnings are possible, no matter how broken, devastated, or crazy someones life may be. Yet todays churches dont do messy very well.
The Genesis Project is a network of believers whose goal is to plant churches in dark places, targeting people who dont normally "do" church. Reaching drug addicts, convicts, strippers, and gang members, theyve seen God do some amazing things with seemingly hopeless lives. The God of New Beginnings tells these dramatic stories, offering practical wisdom for breaking through the darkness in a persons life:
Pursuing real relationships Opening up true stories Pulling together safe communities Getting honest about sin Extending Gods forgiveness and freedom Helping people reset their lives and habits Coping with ongoing complications Not giving up when setbacks occur Freely sharing the victories Keeping the faith life simple Love never fails. And when we incorporate Gods love into our lives and relationships, redemption is possible.
