Hope in a world of suffering

Scripture bears witness to a God who is good and limitless in his grace. Yet we don't have to look far to be confronted by a world mired in unceasing violence, suffering and death: Ukraine, Iraq, South Sudan, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya - the list goes on.

People naturally ask 'Where is God in all this?' What grounds does Scripture give us for hope in the midst of crisis and temptation to despair? We will be looking at three key passages providing assurance of God's continued presence, sovereignty, trustworthiness, grace and love. It is an opportunity to affirm and understand more fully the sure and certain foundation for the hope that God gives to all Christians as we face adversity in a fallen world.
