The Struggle is Real: Finding Joy in the Struggle

Life is full of ups and downs. In a moment we can go from appreciating the beauty and wonder of life, to seeing the reality of evil and injustice that seems to permeate our world. So what do you do when your situation or circumstance doesn’t make sense? Or when it seems like God is doing nothing?

The struggle is real.

Habakkuk, an ancient prophet, had a very similar experience in his time. Our next series joins Habakkuk on his journey and struggle with God that leads him out of disillusionment and despair towards genuine trust and hope in God. Join us over the next 6 weeks on Sundays in downtown Toronto at Innis College, 10:30am.

gods AT WAR: Approval

Have you ever had to compete for someone’s attention or affection? You are together, but it feels like they are a million miles away. They may even look like they are listening to you but you sense that they are somewhere else. It’s easy to do these days. Watch people in a restaurant surrounded by TV screens and it is hard to keep your focus on the people you are with! Our hearts have a tendency to be captivated by something. Sometimes these affections or distractions can be all consuming and it can feel like a battleground in our hearts and minds. We’re going to talk about the root of such things in a 4-part series called “gods AT WAR.” Join us for this discussion. It might make all the difference between a well balanced life, and one that can feel out of control.
