Everybody Hurts … Sometimes

I’m convinced that part of being/becoming a mature Christian is acknowledging the present pain and brokenness of the world and refusing to simply gloss over it with platitudes. To that end this post, “Thanking God for R.E.M.” at Red Letter Christians really struck a chord. Disclaimer: if you’re not a fan of R.E.M. it probably won’t connect with you the way it connected with me.
