For the next four weeks Pastor Doug is going to preach a brief series called Building a Resilient Faith.
Resilience is an important quality for every person to develop. Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. Resilience is also the ability to spring back into shape.
Strength and elasticity are characteristics we find in a resilient object, like a rubber band, or a person. How do we develop resilience in ourselves?
Perhaps it begins with understanding that adversity, hardship, and suffering have always been part of the human experience.
We shouldn’t be surprised that sometimes life is painful and hard. One source of resilience is faith in God who loves us and doesn’t leave us in our times of trouble.
