Recession and depression are scientific terms used by economists. But when you’re out of work, can’t provide for your family, and perhaps facing foreclosure, who cares what you call it? It’s panic time.
Or is it?

When your financial house collapses, first seek the Lord, advises the Crossroads Network, a faith-based, job-coaching service. That’s what Angela Cain did.
“During my time without work, I was praying,” she recalls. “I seemed to understand that God wanted me to approach my job search in a new way. I did not know what this endeavor would look like, but it seemed to me that the way I searched for a job would never be the same again.” She remembered a verse she’d read long ago, Isaiah 43:19. “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”
Rather than use a traditional career-help service, Cain opted for Crossroads Network, available through Eastminster Presbyterian, Northeast Presbyterian, and Lake Murray Presbyterian churches. Participants don’t have to be members of the host church, or any church, and the curriculum is free.

Why did Christ die for you?
