And this last act never ends because you can never stop loving the other.”
~ Ocean Vuong, the Vietnamese-American poet, essayist and novelist
Message “Good + Grief: Grieve to Heal” Dr. Haley Feuerbacher
Dr. Haley Feuerbacher will deliver the second part of her mini-sermon series “Good + Grief: Faith After Uvalde” using the text John 11:1-7, 12-46. This sermon will be focused less on the ones grieving and more on how to courageously support those who are grieving and go into the grief-stricken places together, following Christ’s example at Lazarus’ tomb.
