Dealing with Crisis and Grief


"The Lord is with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)

Even for those who strive to cultivate gratitude and positivity, pain and problems in life are a reality. The most important thing to know is that the Lord is with us and feels our interior state alongside us whether we are navigating times of pain, joy, or anything in between.

"God is most closely present in our spiritual struggles and secretly gives us support." (True Christian Religion 126)

Why would a loving God allow good people to go through pain and suffering? How can we go on when we've lost someone we love?

If you are looking for tools to find hope in a complicated world, understand why suffering happens, help someone you love, or reconnect with the Lord’s presence in your life, the New Church has resources to help you rebuild your courage.
