Adversity and Resilience

If you would like to hear a recording of Toon’s sermon, please click here.

Toon Fuderich, a friend of our congregation, writes, “Building resilience is much like learning how to play the guitar. When you first try to play, your fingers get sore and you get frustrated, and some might even quit after just a few lessons.” A resilient person pushes past that initial discomfort and begins to realize that greater joy and satisfaction lie ahead. The more you endure the discomfort during practice, the tougher and stronger your fingers get. Learn more how nurturing resilience is possible; it it is not a fixed character trait but a strength that can be learned, even under difficult circumstances.
