September 14th update from David Bridges

Last week I wrote about holding on to faith in Christ even when we don’t understand what’s happening in our lives or can’t explain what is going on around us.  To be sure, that doesn’t mean we should just shrug our shoulders when we encounter difficult things or not attempt to understand how painful experiences may shape us.  In fact, when we encounter difficulties or pain, it’s important to ask how such experiences might form us and help us grow. …

September 7th update from David Bridges
