Joy in Suffering

Joy in suffering is something that sounds strange to the ears. By definition there shouldn’t be joy in misery and suffering. There is, of course, more to the joy of the Christian than how I’m feeling. Being part of Christ means that we see the world in a different light.

Demons and the spirit world are very real. Join us as we take a look at topic in our Bible class series Ends of the Earth: Snake Girl.
