Part 3: Suffering

Suffering is a reality of being human. It is the plight of many with no end in sight. As believers, our ability to ease the suffering in this world goes far beyond the practical help it extends to those we help. 2 Corinthians 1:3-7; Matthew 5:4; Romans 8:18-21; 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

Part 2: Justice

Justice has become an important social priority, especially since injustice continues to be so prevalent. How do Christians navigate true justice in a world of inequality, racial strife, and economic disparity? Isiah 61:8-9; Micah 6:8; Luke 18:1-8

Part 1: Creation

From the dawn of humanity, we have looked to the skies and wondered how it all came together. Even today, theories of how the universe was formed are legion. Why should Christians care about this hotly debated topic of creation and how does it affect our caring for the environment? Genesis 2:15; Romans 8:22-23; Colossians 1:15-16; Psalms 19:1-6

The Grudge – Part 1: The Tension

Why is forgiveness so hard, especially when it is an expected part of what it means to be a believer in God? How do we understand and navigate forgiveness when we’ve been deeply hurt? Matthew 6:14-15; 18:21

Part 6: Love

Similar to God’s goodness, love is another attribute that when misunderstood, creates a one-dimensional caricature that misrepresents the very heart of God. Exodus 34:5-7; John 3:16-17; 1 Corinthians 13:1-3; 1 John 4:8
