We live in an age of doubt, when many people seem to thrive on conflict and negativity. It can get you down. One of the worst features of our 24/7 media cycles and the information and opinion overload we all experience is the insidious way they dull our sensitivity to faith in God and others.
Our journey of faith can certainly be challenging, especially so when we dwell in a world where unbelief is so common. For many of us, therefore, our journey of faith is likely to have its ups and downs.
