Book signing: Finding God in a Culture of Fear

The Methodist Conference 2019, Conference Bookstall, Birmingham

Tuesday 2 July 1.00-2.00pm

Jo Cox-Darling will be signing copies of her new book Finding God in a Culture of Fear: Discovering hope in God’s kingdom. How can we live a little more hopefully each day? Fear, terrorism, corruption, fake news… it can be easy to become discouraged by the culture around us. Now more than ever, society needs hope in order to survive and flourish. This book takes us beyond comfort zones and easy answers, and towards a deeper understanding and practice of hope. It offers reflections, stories and practical ways for individuals and groups to find hope in their lives through discovering more about God in their midst.

Visit the bookstall and meet Joanna.
