The source of suffering could be persecution, ideological disputes, differing ideas between members, natural and man-made disasters such as wars, famines, and a pandemic.

The Bible says that “now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us” (Rom 5:5).

Don’t Overworry, It’s Very Silly

Don’t worry about tomorrow,
What can it do?
Tell it to shoo!
Can’t you see your life by it becomes hollow?

Remember God takes care of the sparrow;
Worry too much,
God’s grace you won’t touch,
Why not His holy name hallow?

Take each day as it comes and be mellow,
Enjoy the spring and the summer,
A simple piece of bread and butter,
With thanksgiving, let your life sing as a cello.
