God Hatches Hope Out of Darkness

We sometimes wonder in life’s struggles, tragic events, or troubling news reports from around the country, “Where are you, God?”  This is especially true during challenging circumstances that we face as individuals or even as a country. My father in law is a man of wisdom.  Sometimes he will share with me thoughts that seem …
