“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings." Philippians 3:10 If we follow Jesus, we will experience pain. It comes with the territory. We might face hardship because of our Christian commitment, or we may have challenges just from living in a fallen world. Either way, Christians follow in the footsteps of our suffering Savior and participate in his suffering. But that's not the whole story. Today, our guests will show us how transformation through our personal pain enables us to minister faithfully to a hurting world.
Do you desire an authentic relationship with Christ but struggle with the question of hardship? Suffering can be trying, but it is a vital component of authenticity. When you experience pain, your first reaction might be, "Please, God! Take it away!" But looking beyond the immediate, what should your first reaction be? In their book The Fellowship of the Suffering, Paul Borthwick and Dave Ripper state that pain doesn't need to have dominion over you. Learn how you can live an authentic Christian life and engage with this world's hardship appropriately.

Hollywood has pulled the release of the movie The Hunt because of the recent shootings claiming the lives of dozens of Americans. The premise of the film is for a group of wealthy participants to "hunt" people with a particular worldview, pro-lifers as an example. The move was wise decision given the current state of affairs in our country. Does the entertainment industry have a role to play in self-regulating content? Should the producers and distributors consider the 'bigger picture' of cultural context or should the profit be the driving motive? Please share your thoughts.
