Dwell: Suffering

This week our DWELL series will lead us to consider suffering as a means of cultivating intimacy with God. During our gathering, we’ll look to one of the Old Testament’s most vivid stories of how our moments and seasons of suffering are very often the moments and seasons when God’s presence is most vivid and intimate. We will take time to stir our affections to find great value in our suffering, because through it, we come to know God more fully. We will then respond in worship and a bread-and-cup communion service as we consider the suffering of Jesus that ultimately made our relationship with God possible.
