IC Week Seven Title

By Dan Etheridge

Week seven: Loss…

Loss is something that has and will affect us all at some point, if not already. It could be that you have lost a loved one, it could be that you are angry about losing the opportunity to go away or celebrate a birthday with friends. You could be sad at the loss of your school prom. We want to share with you some stories of our persecuted family, who despite huge loss, are able to cling onto Jesus. When our lives are turned upside down by loss, the amazing promises in the Bible, and our loving heavenly Father, stay the same – and that’s something really worth knowing and depending on. So, dig into this week’s material and let us know what you think!

Before you jump in, we also know that during this global crisis our church family around the world are in need. The losses that we are experiencing are being shared by Christians who are really struggling during this outbreak. In India, many Christians come from poorer communities. Being on lock-down means they can’t work, which means no money for rent or food. And this is where we can stand with them, providing what they need whilst restrictions are still in place. Please check out the new coronavirus crisis appeal here, take on a fundraising challenge, share the link and help your church family around the world. Thank you!
