HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WIAT) – In a sermon Sunday morning, Doctor Charles Carter addressed concerns of many in the church community. The morning’s topic: “It’s ok to ask questions.”
Carter explained… “Now don’t hear me say I’m going to give you all the answers to your why questions this morning, but it is to say when we know the why, sometimes it helps us endure the what.”
Carter went on to say that people often ask why bad things happen to good people.
In words of comfort for the congregation, he emphasized the understanding that the answers for why tragedy strikes, are not always immediate,
but a belief must always exist.. that the answers will come.
“We can ask in the right spirit, ask the right person, ask in the right reason, get the right answer and make the right response, but then after we’ve done all that, there comes a time inevitably, when you have to take the leap of faith.”
