Does Everything Happen For A Reason?-011621

Series: WORD-FM Sermons - 1st Quarter 2022

January 19, 2022
Rev. Tom Hall

In his sermon, "Does Everything Happen for a Reason?", Rev. Tom Hall begins a new sermon series, “Cliches We Love, Truths We Need.” Inspired by author Kate Bowler’s book, Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies I’ve Loved, Rev. Hall explores how we tend to attach ourselves to simplistic ideas that we think help us make sense of life. But cliches let us down. Why settle for cliches when we God offers us his timeless truth? When something awful happens, many people say, “Everything happens for a reason.” But is that true? Is it comforting? The lesson this week explores Jesus’ response to two ancient tragedies, one an atrocity committed by the Romans and one a natural disaster.
