Even before a global pandemic, there was a sharp uptick in angst and hopelessness in our culture. Feelings of exhaustion, anxiety, and anger seem to be ever-lurking just below the surface of the socially-acceptable-facade we present to others.

While the way of Jesus doesn’t preclude our suffering, it does ground us in a tradition and a reality that show us how to grow through it.
