Scripture: "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze."
Music: "You'll Never Walk Alone" performed by Josh Groban
Message: The Radiance of the Cross
"Wherever there is pain, there is God"
Rev. Tom Bentley "Getting a Grip on the Cross"
What a reassuring thought...
Through the deep suffering of Jesus on the Cross, we can learn to transcend our suffering and allow it to transform our pain into a greater understanding of ourselves. Of who we are meant to be in the fullness of this life.
Embracing the uncertainty of life requires us to be present. In releasing our quest for answers that will be revealed in time, the Cross can shine a radiant light on our darkness.
As Rev. Tom shared in his message, God knows and feels our pain, even before our awareness.
May we feel surrounded by God's love through it all.
