Right Next To Us

"Where is God when we suffer and die? That's the question the Bible speaks to.  And the answer is: right next to us, just as Jesus suffered and died right next to the two robbers. The Bible portrays a God who is wounded by our suffering, who is involved in our suffering, and who, in the mystery of the cross, suffers with and for us. His passing through suffering and death into a new form of life gives us hope."
