How We Respond to “Bad Stuff”

This week’s podcast came a couple of days later than planned, but it’s here now.

This is another little chat coming from one of those group discussions I attend, and it deals with our response to negative things happening in the world around us… and in our own lives. The question that was raised in the discussion was about how these things make us question our faith, but being my difficult self, I question the premise: Do we really question our faith when bad things happen, or do we realize that Jesus promised us troubles?

    I wonder sometimes if we assume that cos we is the top of the food chain, we somehow deserve special treatment. I also wonder sometimes whether some of these problems we bump into are God’s way of getting us to ask why – in the hope we are listening for an answer. And sometimes I think “s**t happens” because it does. LM might refer to some of this as “Training Wheels” – or I might simply be misquoting LM. Thought ponderful podcast! πŸ™‚

    Interesting that I just read in a study I’m doing about how we are to respond when bad things happen. Your podcast was an enforcement on that study, or should I say affirmation. Thanks for sharing. Also wanted you to know I’ve missed you and glad to hear it was only technical difficulties that kept you silent. God bless your day, Don.
