Bad things happen to good disciples
What is going on? Jesus has a funny way of giving us just what we need - but often we don't recognize it. When we are in the middle of the hard times, the unclear future, and unexpected challenges it can feel like God has lost control, or that God doesn't love us very much. However, God is doing amazing things in the world and in your life - cling to God in faith and see where the journey ends.
The call of Jesus in Matthew 10, and the adventures of the Pilgrims of 1620 can help us prepare for any future which might come.
