The Struggle With Pain
"Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.”
~ 1 Peter 4:12
Why do we even struggle at all?
Isn't God supposed to be good and powerful?
Why are we not spared all pain?
How do we makes sense of suffering in our faith?
This Sunday we'll actually construct a
"Theology of Suffering."
It won't answer all the questions,
but it will give us a foundation for trusting in the God
who suffered on the cross,
and goes with us through the pain of our lives,
and who promises all things will one day be redeemed.
