The rest of us are having a great time!" I think it is safe to say that he was wrong. Everyone does suffer. We are not all having a great time but the good news is that we can have hop...

William Cowper wrote one of the most beloved hymns of all time ("There is a Fountain Filled with Blood") but is little known today because he struggled tremendously with depression.

The Suffering Church - Web

C. S. Lewis was once asked if the righteous suffer. "Why not?" he said. "They are the only ones who can handle it." The Bible is very clear that the righteous suffer alongside the wicked.

Have you ever wondered why the church is so messy? The story is told of a mom who woke her son up on a Sunday morning to tell him it was time for church. He responded by saying that he did not want to go. So she said in response: "But, Honey, you have to go. You are the pastor!" I think we have all experienced that from time-to-time. We have all wanted to stay in bed rathe...
