The Very Good (Podcast Episode 9)


Is a pandemic the will of God? What role does God’s sovereignty play in the events of the world? If God is loving and good, then why is there so much evil in the world? 

These are all difficult question that don’t necessarily have clear answers. But on this episode of the podcast, we explore some possibilities for how we can interpret current events in light of God’s sovereignty.

We also talk about some sure promises and encouragements that God has given to us in the scriptures that speak to our most difficult struggles–individually as well as collectively.
