My mood drops when hearing the worldly catch phrase of “Everything happens for a reason.” If you think about it, maybe yours falls into a decline too. When someone is facing the unknown of deep pain, tragedy, unexplained events in life, this phrase must simply be moved to a more kingdom centered one. Think about it…Have you ever used this phrase when someone gets a job promotion, finds the love of his life, has a first child, or beats cancer?  No, it is only used when we are struggling with the complexities of a fallen and broken world full of sin.  We use it when we are struggling with the unfair situations life seems to drop into our lives.  God does in fact have plans for us, but his overarching plan has to do with redemption and life changing love.  The “Everything happens for a reason,” phrase triggers a perceived distance from God.

According to Smith, there is widespread excitement as a permanent ministry outpost is established to reach more families in the community in and around Fishers.
