018 /// Redefining Suffering

It’s not much fun talking about suffering, but let’s be honest . . . suffering’s a big part of our lives. In some Christian circles, people are discouraged from acknowledging pain or suffering.

It’s hard to be alone when we don’t know ourselves. From early on, we’re taught to identify through association: the cliques in school, the teams we play on, the families we’re in, the churches we attend. If we’re not careful, these associations can become our identity and keep us from […]
