I met Spencer Beach at the 2019 synod convention. It wasn’t until I was halfway through writing his story when it struck me how much it reminded me of Job’s.
In the interview, Spencer and I talked quite a bit about the question, Why me, God? How fitting that our “Please explain” column this month addresses a question that often follows: "Whom do we blame for bad things?".
God’s grace and love were also highlighted in our interview. God’s love for all sinners is perhaps most evident during the season of Lent. Check out March's table of contents for all our Lenten articles.
