Why does God allow his children to suffer even as they are serving him on the mission to which he has called them? The book of 2 Corinthians lists a number of reasons that God allows his children to suffer. Launching our Word series for the Spring semester, Ken Berding will unpack the first two reasons from 2 Cor 1:3-11, one of his most-cherished passages of Scripture.
