The COVID-19 season we are finding ourselves in leaves many of us uncertain about the future – hoping for some measure of clarity for what lies ahead. GLN Southern Africa hosted a session of hope, by revisiting “The Last Arrow” by Erwin McManus (GLS2018) and offering an opportunity to reflect upon what God might be inviting each of us to at this time.

In a season of upheaval and uncertainty for many, Erwin’s message offers a word of encouragement, and challenge – that felt particularly appropriate for this time. The talk was followed by some of our friends – a panel of pastors and ministry leads – that also encouraged our audience.
A reference illustration to Erwin’s key points can be downloaded and viewed at .
