Below are study and teaching notes for sermons and classes. Most include references to other sources I have used in preparation and/or to additional comments I've included to show why I've reached certain conclusions or to consider ideas that go beyond what I was able to share in the notes or their presentation.
I add them here to encourage study of the Scriptures. They may be used and cited with the following documentation:

Trials and Troubles
In a fallen world, the question is not if we will experience trials, but when they will occur (see James 1:2). Scripture is realistic about this characteristic of the world. And while the questions are often complex and not easily resolved, the Bible also gives direction for coping with our trials when they occur. The following lessons-more a collection of studies than a series-are designed to help us do the thinking that prepares us to face our trials and trouble.
1 - Growing Our Perspective on Life and Trouble
2 - Why Them and Not Us? When the Answer to a Prayer Is "No"
