Our theology tells us that in life we will have many troubles. Our everyday experience assures us that this is true. Anxiety, trauma, depression, difficult and broken relationships, and problems that won’t seem to go away—we know them well. It’s tempting to keep our troubles to ourselves and ourselves from each other’s troubles. But our theology also tells us that God speaks deeply to comfort and guide our troubled hearts, and that he calls each of us to be channels of his care in the midst of these struggles. Our goal is to help one another with wisdom and love, to hear more good words from Jesus, and to let the world be attracted to the God who cares.
