A UMC.org Feature by Joe Iovino
July 11, 2016
The news can bring us down. There is so much wickedness reported, we struggle to find that which is uplifting. As Christians, we assert that God has created the world to be good, even as we struggle to find the positive.
In times like these we need to remind one another of the hope we know in Jesus Christ. If you find yourself caught in a swirl of negativity these days, here are several suggestions of ways to keep it from becoming all consuming.
