Dealing with Hurt and Injustice
When faced with hurt and injustice, we've heard people suggest everything from "eye for an eye" to basically letting yourself be treated like a doormat. But what does Jesus call us to do?

Is is possible to be content IN a situation even if you are not content WITH the situation? In other words, is it possible to be OK even when the situation is NOT OK? Today, we wrap up the Book of Philippians as the Apostle Paul talks about the Secret of contentment...and ultimately the goodness of God's unearned, unending love.

“Make it Make Sense,” is about making sense of our story in light of God’s story. Everyone loves a good story. In fact, our entire lives are shaped by the stories that we believe about ourselves and the world around us. God has wired us that way which explains why the Bible is filled with stories. In fact, if you have eyes to see, the Bible tells one grand overarching story. And you are a character in God’s story.
