Biblical Advice for Living Faithfully in Trying Times
There’s no doubt we’re living through seriously difficult times right now. Our experiences differ, but we’re all impacted in some way by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, social inequality, and racial injustice. Many of us feel a sense of sadness, grief, or worry because things are not as God intended. So, what does God call us to do? How can we as Christians respond to the tragedy, injustice, and unrest in our midst? How do we remain faithful in our thoughts, our responses, and our actions? In this Groundwork series, we’ll dig into scripture to find both promises to sustain us and wisdom to help us continue living faithfully as we navigate these trying times.
