Pastor Jason reminds us that Jesus does not promise us a pain-free life. Jesus teaches us that in the midst of suffering there is beauty, that in struggle there is growth, that in failure we acquire wisdom. We do not wish to glorify pain and suffering, but we need to realize that it is part of life. It is through suffering and pain that we grow and are changed for the better. The sermon text is Mark 8:31-35. The ensuing discussion by the congregation is included in the podcast.
