Psalms for the Enraged, Downtrodden, Confused, and Blessed

Sometimes this world just doesn’t make sense. God is in heaven and the world is a living hell. For some of us Refugees from war; battling cancer, and so on. Yet we see others living flush. Even the greedy and arrogant and cheats.

We know God blesses the righteous. But sometimes we just can’t see it. Why, O Lord, why?

This session will begin on January 5 and will run 4 weeks through the end of January.
