Welcome to our study of suffering and what the Christian scriptures say about it. Each week we will explore an emotion common to the experience of suffering no matter what form it may take. Through a Psalm and a story we will see how we should not avoid these feelings but bring them to God and listen for his will in the midst of the shadows. Download the Participant Guide below as a PDF and then watch each week’s video as you journey with us through these six weeks.
