Welcome to the weekly blog focused on sharing tragedies, their transformation, and how God’s word, especially the book of Job, provides hope.
I want this to be a safe place where we can share stories of people whose lives have been shaken by some disaster or other, natural, man-made, even self-inflicted. Headline after headline highlight the tragedies someone somewhere faces right now: nuclear meltdown, earthquake, floods, tornadoes, violence, missing persons, including children, etc. The list is endless, updated daily on our websites and in our newscasts and papers. Feel free to submit a short summary of what’s happened to you and what you learned.
I want, however, to go beyond our sorrow and pain to share how we’ve coped, redeemed, and transformed what we’ve been through. I want us to encourage each other through the ordeals, sooner or later, we all face. How have time, your circumstances, and/or God brought about changes to make your life better now? How have you discovered your tragedy transformed?
Next week I’ll explore the third dimension of this blog, what a “Friend of Job” means.
