"Grace and Suffering"
The Apostle Paul calls us to "boast of our sufferings" as we "boast of our hope of the glory of God." That begs the question: how? It is my belief that we boast of our sufferings by reclaiming the deeply theological and invitational question: how are you? By asking that question and carving out space to answer it and listen to others' answer it we experience God's grace in our lives. In fact, we find that God meets us in that question and reminds us we aren't alone.
