Tears Can Change

All Saints Sunday

October 29th, 2017: 21st Sunday After Pentecost

Reverend Dan is preaching.

Revelation 7:9-17

The loss of someone we love always brings about tears of sadness, loss, sorrow, and grief.

Those tears are a natural human emotional response to something as final as death. When we approach our human death through the eyes of a faith in Jesus Christ those tears can and will start to change. They will change from tears of sadness and pain to tears of peace, joy, and celebration. How can that be?  How can I ever have tears of joy in the wake of the loss of a loved one?  That is the question we will encounter through the text in Revelation.
