Mourning and Comfort

Nov 06, 2022

Passage: Matthew 5:1-12

Preacher: Rev. Anna Gillette

Series: Beatitudes:


We are imprinted from the moments when we mourn. As a nation, we remember where we were on 9/11, when the Space Shuttle exploded, and when Kennedy was shot. Even if we didn’t know those who died personally, we can tell you exactly what we were doing at the time of those tragedies. When it comes to family and friends, we are easily drawn back to the memories of final days or final moments of a love ones death. Even though we are also drawn fondly into special memories of our time with that person, we still remember the pain of that loss. Yet, Jesus says, “Blessed are those who mourn.” Pastor Anna digs into this complex statement as we both finish the Beatitudes worship series and observe All Saints’ Day.
