Welcome to CSBC Online this week.

Carolyn Francis talks about Jesus, the cursed fig tree, and asks whether we have a problem with hope. Is it too easy to replace true hope with wishful thinking or delusions?

Members of our CSBC community offer prayers of gratitude and longing, and Geoff Maddock and some of the cross-cultural workers from Global Interaction invite us to join them in their weekend of prayer.

Thanks for joining us!
