We all have experiences, feelings, and questions about God and faith that would make others feel squeamish, uncomfortable, or embarrassed if we said them out loud. In fact, some of us have felt that if other Christians, or people at church, knew what we were thinking or what we were feeling in this moment they would be completely ashamed of us.

So instead, we filter our thoughts, suppress our feelings, and pretend that everything is good. But that doesn’t move us closer to God, nor does it allow us to build trust with God.

In the opening sermon of our new series, Unfiltered, Pastor Ricky Ortiz shares with us what God is actually doing when it feels like He has failed us.
