Spread out your burdens before the Lord in times of crisis, Cabal preaches

In times of crisis, Christians must spread out their burdens before the Lord and pray, said Ted J. Cabal, professor of philosophy of religion at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, during his chapel sermon, March 24. 

“The Lord is kind and good to His people, even when we can’t see it, if we just trust Him and will spread our burdens out before Him,” Cabal said.

Cabal is a two-time graduate of Southwestern Seminary (Master of Divinity, 1990; Ph.D., 1995) and, in the words of President Adam W. Greenway, is in “his second tour of duty” on Southwestern’s faculty, having served at the seminary “a generation ago” before teaching at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He returned to Southwestern’s faculty in 2020.
