Scripture of the Week

Probably because I have been involved in 3 funerals this month I have been thinking a lot about our mortality, about the reality of grief, and the need for hope with respect to eternity. I’ve been thinking about how seasons of loss ought to give us pause and lead us to ponder significant questions, such as, what happens when I die?

I officiated at a funeral yesterday and this was the core verse from the Scriptures in my reflection:

The Lord is near the brokenhearted;
he saves those crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34:18
