Where’s God In All Of This?


Sometimes I think we’ve become a desensitized to the tragedies that happen around us.  The news will sensationalize it for a while, but then there’s the next story.  We care about the people impacted, but if it doesn’t hit close to home we don’t dwell on it too long.  However, when we experience a personal tragedy, a question that lingers in the back of our mind or may be asked is: “Where’s God in all of this?”

Our country has been experiencing many tragedies over the past few months: the horrific shooting in Las Vegas this past Sunday night, hurricanes, wildfires, and flooding.  We’re also very aware of the tragedy that impacted our southern neighbors as another earthquake ravaged Mexico City.  There’s horrible violence and flooding going on in Asia. And we’ve experienced the tragic death of a High School Junior in Paradise this week.

This Sunday, October 8, we’ll begin a new series called: Where’s God In All of This?  I hope to answer a few questions and point us in a direction of hope and help for these turbulent times.
