Living Well – From Bad to Worse: A New Perspective When Things Aren’t Working Out
How do we deal with circumstances that are not what we had planned or hoped for? The story of Ruth is a story of hope and promise but it begins with a man and his family who have fallen on hard times. Is it over before it begins? In this sermon, I want to consider how we fit into the larger purpose and story of God especially in times when things seem like they’ve gone off the tracks and appear hopeless. God can leverage the darkness, pain, and doubt we experience in such a way that it moves us forward toward his peace and meaningful participation in his purposes.
