Welcome to Village Church. We’re a community that’s all about loving Jesus and loving one another. To find out more, head to vc.org.au, we’d love to hear from you. This week we are beginning our holiday mini-series, Confronting Christianity, in which we will wrestle with some of the bigger questions of the Christian faith and how we can live faithfully for Jesus in the greyer areas of life. This week, we’re going to be asking how a loving God could allow so much suffering in the world, and what hope or help is out there when we ourselves face the troubles and terrors of life?
