the big idea:
In our modern world most people have a negative view suffering. Suffering is bad and to be avoided at all costs. Yet, suffering has not always been viewed in this way. A Biblical worldview of suffering sees pain and struggle as an opportunity, perhaps even a gift from God. In this series we will explore what God has to say about suffering and pain. We also consider how embracing suffering can help us better appreciate what God is doing to shape and mold us for his plans and purposes.
