The Life of Joseph: God’s Sovereignty in Our Suffering

This weekend at Eastbrook Church we begin a new series entitled “The Life of Joseph: God’s Sovereignty in Our Suffering.” As we trace the life of Joseph in Genesis, we get a glimpse of how God is at work in our lives. We can grapple with how we respond in faith through the ups and downs of life. We all face troubles in life, but God is at work in the midst of those troubles, even if He seems hidden. In this Lenten journey, we will explore themes of faith, suffering, God’s hiddenness and God’s sovereignty from the life of Joseph in Genesis 37-50. Read more background to the life of Joseph here.

Along with the weekend messages, I want to invite you to join a 40-day devotional journey. You can find out more about how to access that devotional in print or electronically here.
