Being a Christian means that you are on a journey of faith, with many ups and downs. Be reassured that God is with you as you progress on the path of discipleship. Reading the scriptures, and being with a community of fellow disciples can be very encouraging but sometimes we need a little more. Attending Sunday worship, Bible study groups, and conversations can help, however below are some links to websites that are useful and I recommend them to you for further reflection. I have also identified some books, and films for consideration.
TIP. When considering a situation, issue or relationship, whether it is yours or someone else’s, always ask the question ‘ Where is God ? Can I see God working? Can I see justice and love ?
