A six-week study on how to maintain hope during times of suffering

Stephen Foster, Job, the Canaanite woman—what do they have in common, and what can we learn from them?

Pastor and storyteller Alex Joyner takes us deep into the lives of these three people, exploring anger, audacity, hope, and joy. Through it all, he poses the question: Why do we suffer?

Hard Times Come Again No More is a six-week study that affirms the goodness of God, the reality of evil, and the wonder and tragedy of living in hard times.

Alex Joyner is the author of Restless Hearts: Where Do I Go Now, God? and writes for the popular FaithLink adult studies and the online magazine Catapult. A published poet and photographer, he has served as campus minister at the University of Virginia and is now pastor of Franktown United Methodist Church on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
