When bad things happen to us, or to those we love, or even to total strangers, we often feel our faith in a good, compassionate, just and loving God challenged. We wonder how God can let certain things happen, what power good has over bad, why innocent people must suffer, and how our faith can help us through. Feeling this way when bad things happen is, in fact a response of faith. Thoughtful sections of this booklet include: Let your own faith be supported by the faith of others; Seek out faith-inspiring experiences; Join or continue to participate in a worshiping community; Take heart.
