Though now for a little while ...

Finding Joy Sermon Series

October 28th, 2018

Twenty-Third Sunday After Pentecost.

Reverend Dan is preaching.

1 Peter 1:3-9

Death hurts.  There is no getting around that.  It could be the finality of it.  It could be the new normal that we are all forced to create in the wake of losing someone we loved so dearly.  That pain and that suffering is something that, “though now for a little while” can speak to as we go through those difficult times of death and loss in our lives.

If we have an eternal perspective on the lives that we live here, we can say, “though now for a little while” in regards to the hurt and pain we feel.  In the text for today we are being called into the eternal as we live lives that are all terminal.

Do you exist in the eternal or in the terminal?
