The tragedies seem to pile up quickly, the next one nipping at the heels of the last. Over the last two weeks, we’ve seen the biggest mass shooting in US history, the terror of wildfires scourging California, and a slew of other crises too numerous to name here. We at The Well have been watching and praying along with you all. In the spirit of ushering God’s kingdom on earth more fully, we offer you a few of the most helpful resources we have come across in these difficult days.
