Out Here Hope Remains is the personal blogspace of me, John Dobbs. I grew up in the fellowship known as Churches of Christ, but I love all Christians. For some people in my fellowship that last sentence will need some pondering upon. Anyhow, I have been loved, taught, raised, encouraged, pushed along in life and discipleship by these wonderful believers in Jesus. I’ve spent most of my life in Mississippi and Louisiana, but I don’t like seafood and I’m not an outdoorsman. Weird. I know. What I write here is mostly for me, although you are invited along. I do not claim to write for our great brotherhood, for all Christians, or even for all humans. My faith is grace-dependent. I am nothing and have nothing without the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thanks for stopping by.
