Faith in the Wilderness

Last night I tried writing down some things I’ve been thinking regarding suffering and faithfulness to God during our times of spiritual wilderness, but I couldn’t find the right words to convey exactly what I wanted to say. This morning I came across a sermon by Matthew Browne (Eastside parish pastor at Trinity Anglican Church here in Atlanta, GA). I thought I’d share it with you all, because he says exactly what I want to say but far more eloquently.

It takes a couple of minutes for him to really get going; so be patient. It will be worth your while. Also, if you only have a little bit of time to commit, I’d say listen to the last 6 minutes. That part had me in tears. Clearly, it was the part I most needed to hear.

Matthew Browne-Trinity Anglican Church: 1 Cor. 10:1-14

*If the specific sermon doesn’t pop right up, it’s the third one down on the list. As my children will tell you, I’m hopeless when it comes to technology.
