Are you struggling to make sense of everything going on? If so, you are not alone.
We want to know how you are processing the events swirling in our nation and in the world. We are opening up the comments section below for you to share your opinion, feelings, prayers. We invite you to interact as a community of praying believers–we are convinced that we can learn from each other and from what the Lord is showing each other.
We looked for verses about community and found this encouragement Peter shared with the early Church who were suffering for Christ:
To sum up, you should all be of one mind living like brothers with true love and sympathy for each other, generous and courteous at all times. Never pay back a bad turn with a bad turn or an insult with another insult, but on the contrary pay back with good. For this is your calling—to do good and one day to inherit all the goodness of God. For: ‘He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking guile: let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayers; but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil’. (1 Pt 3:8 PHILLIPS)
