Featured DownloadThere's no doubt we live in a fallen world—just take a look at the news. Every day brings some new tragedy or crisis, whether personal, local, national, or global. And the truth is that many Christians have trouble making sense of all this suffering—including the Christians sitting in your living room.

How can small-group leaders help group members process these difficult events and respond in meaningful ways? How can we point them back to the hope that God gives us? How can we disciple them through difficult news?

Your small group can play a life-changing role when it comes to helping people respond to crisis. Whether your group is struggling with the news, group (or church) conflict, the refugee crisis, or local needs, we've got resources to help you wade through the mess. Yes, the world can be a scary place. But we serve a loving God that gives us grace, power, and hope for times like these. Read all six of our newest articles on this topic:
