In Darkest Times, God is Present

In Darkest Times, God is Present

“However much evil was there, it would have been far worse if God was not there pushing back on it.”

There is never a time when God is not present, no matter how bad the situation. In this short sermon clip, Greg Boyd talks about how we need to be watchful of the spirit world around us by understanding God’s nature and our free will.  The full sermon is about how we all have times in our life where we go through the motions and don’t pay much attention to what’s going on around us. Greg reminds us to look and be thankful for the things in our lives.
