Stories, Hope When Life Fractures

by Jay Desko

Book Image Not Available
Hope when life fractures. This book is a compilation of stories of suffering, endurance and hope.
Regardless of our faith or background, most of us work hard, very hard, at avoiding pain and suffering. Yet for all of our effort, it is only a matter of when we will be confronted with suffering, not if. And when it strikes, we very likely will experience a flood of emotions, including fear, confusion, anger, and depression. We will also work to endure, seeking a path toward hope. During such times, we are looking for someone or something to give us some hope. It is our desire that these stories provide you with endurance for another day, and with a hope that can carry you beyond your present circumstances.
About the author
This book is not written by a panel of professional psychologists,church leaders, or counselors. It is writen by people who have experienced hand-to-hand combat with suffering. Each person is from Calvary Church, a Christian community of 3000 people in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Calvary is a group of imperfect men, women, and children who have experienced the forgiveness God provided through Jesus, and who have also experienced the challenges of living in a world that disappoints. Such disappointments take many forms, including illness, divorce, abuse, and loss. What they all have in common, however, is the need for endurance and hope. It is our desire that these stories provide you with endurance for another day, and with hope that can carry you beyond your present circumstances.
