What do you believe when your lot in life is not health, wealth and prosperity? How do you reconcile pain and hardship with a strong and loving God? Where do you find hope when you just don’t want the life you have been given?
These questions are big and they are universal. And when you bring them to the Bible, the pages of the Scriptures come alive with answers.
This fall we are going to take a look at some of those answers in our new series The Crooked Lot. We’ll be traveling throughout the times and places of Biblical history to find wisdom and inspiration for our shared human experience.
On Sunday, we started in the beginning with the book of Genesis and the question, “Why are we the way we are?” This is the starting point for the Christian understanding of pain and suffering.
