If you have ever had a conversation of more than three minutes with a four-year old you have probably heard some interesting questions:
Why do we have snow?
Do cats and dogs go to heaven?
How big is the ocean?
Where does God live?
Toddlers, of course, are not the only ones asking questions! The toughest set of questions seems to be the ones that start with “Why?”
Why did Grandma get sick?
Why did we have to move?
Why did my friend die?
How can bad things happen to good people?
This month we are taking a look at suffering in a new sermon series: “Walking through the Darkness.” During these wintry months of extended darkness we will explore what the Bible teaches about walking through times of trial.
Join us this Sunday as we explore the question: “Why Does God allow suffering?” Invite a friend who is going through a tough time to join you. It will be a morning filled with encouragement and the deep, abiding joy that is ours as children of God!
