Study: It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointment Leaves You Shattered by Lysa Terkeurst


Description: From the Author: “Have you ever struggled with the fact that your life doesn’t look the way you thought it would? Maybe you have this feeling that circumstances, relationships, and finances should be better than they are. And underneath it all, you’re disappointed.  Yes, disappointment is a feeling we all have but few of us know how to process it or find God’s goodness in the midst of it. I understand. The last few years, I’ve had to face one hardship after another. At many points I’ve wondered how I would make it through.  But God has been showing me rich truths that I want to share with you in my book, It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way. If you’re asking 'God, why would You allow this to happen?,' this book will help you stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and painful situations. You’ll begin moving forward with peace and confidence, assured that God’s Word holds the answers you’re looking for.”

Tuesday Evenings:

Book Discussion:  Oneness Embraced:  Reconciliation, The Kingdom and Why We Are Stronger Together by Tony Evans  


Description: With the Bible as a guide and heaven as the goal, Oneness Embraced calls God’s people to kingdom-focused unity. It tells us why we don’t have it, what we need to get it, and what it will look like when we do.  Weaving his own story into this word to the church, Tony Evans tells of a life spent between two worlds. As a young theologian he straddled black, urban culture and white, mainline evangelicalism. Now, three decades later, he offers seasoned reflections on matters of history, culture, the church, and social justice. In doing so he gives us a biblical and pastoral guide for striving for unity across racial and socioeconomic divides.  This call for unity is as timely as ever. If the church practices oneness, America will have a guide for becoming the one nation under God it declares itself to be.
