I've encountered several actual tragedies recently, and have been asked the question "What am I supposed to do? How do I keep my faith?" These are really hard questions to answer
I've been thinking a lot, and I propose 7 thing to consider when facing a tragedy. None of these make it "OK" or can take away the truly terrible feeling of facing down a huge amount of suffering. Suffering sucks, no matter how holy one is.
The opportunity with suffering, however, is different. It gives us an option to try to really become something new. It gives us an opportunity to participate with Christ.
In this episode, I try to come up with some really practical things to think about in the face of a tragedy. Whatever level of suffering you may be facing, you will hopefully find some help here.
