  • Jesus can provide meaning to life

    Many people feel disappointed with life. They search for fulfilment and satisfaction, only to find emptiness and disappointment. In despair some turn to alcohol, drugs and even suicide.

    Why is all this so? Most of the time it is because they have not found what most want in life - love and acceptance, meaning and purpose. Many bars have "happy hours." If truthful, they would call it "the unhappy hour." Everyone present is not happy. Some are trying to fill a void in their life. Fame, success and money can't satisfy the deep longings in the heart.
