Good Shepherd Begins News Church-Wide Study


September 6, 2017

“In all things seek to know God’s Will and when known obey at any cost.”

A quote from Johnathan Goforth, a Canadian Presbyterian missionary to China during the 1900’s. What is God’s Will? A timeless question that Christians have asked for centuries. We will address possible answers as Good Shepherd studies Adam Hamilton’s book entitled “Why? Making Sense of God’s Will.” Hamilton rejects simplistic answers. He examined assumptions and lays out core ideas for comprehending God’s plan for the world such as ...

· God will not take away our free will, even when we use it to grieve him.

· God will never abandon us, especially in the midst of our suffering.

· While God is not the author of suffering, God will bring blessing out of tragedy.

Senior Pastor Terilynn Russ will guide discussions into God’s will during the Insights Adult Sunday school class following worship on Sunday mornings, at 11 a.m. Similar discussions will occur at 11 a.m. Saturday mornings starting Sept. 9.

The book is an easy short read and is available now at the Good Shepherd welcome center for a donation of $9. This is a currently appropriate study. We are looking forward to diving into the difficult questions. We would love for you to join us
