FEAR KILLS HOPE

HOPE KILLS FEAR

Join in the journey to

IGNITE HOPE IN AOTEAROA 2022

Kia Ora 

Fear of pandemics, vaccines, border lockdowns, climate change, seas rising, storms. The list goes on and on and it grows daily. It is because of this continual message of fear that we are being bombarded with, that here at Bible Society Group we have chosen our theme for Bible Month 2022 will be ‘The Bible is Hope’. 

Our aim is to ignite hope into our families, churches and throughout our community so that even though fear may try to weaken our hope, it is our hope in God that will destroy fear. 

Joshua 1:9b (ESV) states, “…Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.  

So join us on our journey of bringing hope into our lives in 2022!
