It took thirty years to build Peter Chin's faith, and three months to knock it down. But it only took one moment to rebuild it into something stronger than ever before.

In 2009, Peter Chin moved his family into an inner city neighborhood of D.C. to plant a church. But in the span of only a few months, his family experienced a miscarriage, break-in, a diagnosis of aggressive breast cancer, and then the termination of their health insurance. Peter’s faith wavered as he asked himself how a loving God could allow his family to suffer so profoundly.

But then a surprise: a child, conceived in the most unlikely and adverse of circumstances, a child through whom Peter would learn that although God may be wild and does whatever He wants... whatever He does is good.

Join Peter on his journey of faith, as he uses both humor and theology to explore the reality of suffering, the mystery of the ways of God, and why there is always reason to hope, even in the darkest times.
