For Bishop Dan Edwards of the Episcopal Diocese of Nevada, the words of his faith were not always a source of healing, it took time.
Before becoming a pastor, Edwards was a practicing attorney who, based on his experiences, came to realize the world was a "far darker place than I had imagined it to be," he said.
"I was at that point in my life trying to get through basically by wrapping despair around my shoulders like a shawl and just believing if you don't have any hopes, you won't have any disappointments."
