O My Soul: A Soul Under Stress

Mar 19, 2023  Elisha Freeman — Judith Viorst is the author of the children’s book ‘Alexandar and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.’ In this book, everything goes wrong for Alexandar and his solution is to move to Australia.

What does Jesus teach us that enables us to handle and respond in positive ways? We will seek these answers this morning in our lesson.
