Evil & Suffering Series




Act(s) of Worship


Every day things happen that we can not control, but we must deal with the results. Friends or family going to war, terrorist attacks, car accidents and many more things can happen before we even know it. It’s our reaction to those difficult times that strengthens not only our relationship with God, but who we are as well.

  4. Why do you think that it is important for your actions to match your words?
