Denver picks up his narration. Carson informs Denver that Deborah is near death, so Denver goes to visit. Though Denver is in great pain as well, he can see that Ron is angry at God, which unsettles him. Taking Ron aside, Denver sternly tells Ron to take life as it comes and trust that God will sustain Deborah for as long as he needs her to fulfill his purposes on Earth.
For Denver, faith provides not only a hope but a way to find meaning in the midst of great tragedy, demonstrating how Christianity can help its adherents makes sense of the world, particularly in the face of great pain and loss.
