We live in a time of great uncertainty where change seems to be constant and most of it doesn’t seem to be “change for the better.” From frightening natural disasters and unexpected job losses, to broken relationships and protracted illnesses, life can throw a lot of difficult things in our path. Back in the early days of Christianity, the Apostle Peter was leading the church of Rome through a terrible persecution (this was when Nero burned Rome and scapegoated the Christians) and decided to write his Christian friends in Asia Minor (modern Turkey) to tell them to prepare their minds and hearts for persecution that was most certainly on the way. This document (the Epistle of 1 Peter in the New Testament) is just as vital today as it was then in teaching us how we are to think and act in difficult times.
