There are three kinds of suffering that we all experience: 1) Things done to us by other people 2) Choices we ourselves make and 3) the ordinary hardships of life. Sometimes those things aren’t too bad; they come and go and we learn to live with them. Other times, they knock us off our feet, and we need help standing up again. That’s where River City’s Biblical Counseling comes in, giving another perspective to what you’re going through, and helping you find answers in the Word of God without beating you over the head with guilt.
Jesus himself was familiar with suffering, even called a Man of Sorrows. So we aim to approach the ordinary, day-to-day suffering of human life through the eyes of our Savior, who became human and walked through the same difficulties of loss and grief and sorrow that we do – and now promises to be with us in our hardships of life.
Rodney sits down with Toby Thompson who, along with his wife Erin, is one of the Leadership Team at River City, to talk about Biblical Counseling. They’ll discuss what it is, what it isn’t, and how to get involved if you’re needing help or know someone who is.

When two sinners say “I Do”, you are bound to have some conflict! While marriage is a holy covenant between three parties – a man, woman and God – we understand that men and women have a sin nature that can cause problems in a marriage. These sin issues in a marriage can be, an inability to resolve conflict biblically, inability to compromise, a breakdown in communication, role confusion or frustration, struggles with addictions, struggles with pornography, deceitfulness, unresolved conflict over parenting styles, an affair and more. When we fail to abide in Christ and seek our own solutions to these problems, we often make our situation worse, which puts a greater strain on the marriage. These marriage issues can become very painful and lead to anger, depression, loneliness, bitterness, isolation and brokenness. Grace’s marriage counseling is prepared to help couples get back on track and find hope, healing and restoration for their marriage.Read More
