Does your life feel like the disciples in Mark 4, stuck in a boat on a stormy sea? Maybe you have lost a loved one or suffered a financial setback. For Patrick Schwenk, it was a cancer diagnosis. Through his journey, Patrick learned that, while our culture values control and comfort, God does his greatest work through our pain. Don’t miss his powerful story of tragedy and weakness transformed into strength and hope!
