The most recent release of the video series, “The Journey-Shepherding God’s People” is “Coping with Our Own Suffering”; which focuses on how those of us in the third chapter of life can find themselves feeling alone in their suffering praying for relief and praying that God would take the lead and open the door to a better reality.
“As we struggle, we remember that Jesus struggled, too. He suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane before His passion and death. It seemed that God was not listening to his plea. Jesus’ reply was simply, and probably dejectedly: “Your will be done.” … And then, three days later, the Resurrection!” said Rev. Carol Jubenville, Program Coordinator. “For Jesus, it was just as God had promised in the Old Testament: “I will never fail you or forsake you.” (Dt 31:8) – a reminder for us that no matter the tortuous road that we may be traveling, sooner or later, there will be a fork that will take us to relief, fulfillment and joy”
