I was talking with Margaret Evans the other day and she was telling me she could only talk a minute because she was on the way to the funeral home…AGAIN! This was her third time in two weeks. She lost 3 life-long friends that quickly. These stories from Scripture shed some light on the reality of God’s gracious activity…especially for Margaret, and for all of us when “grief is raw.”It is precisely in situations of great need, when there’s a dead end, literally, that God’s grace breaks in.
Readings: Luke 7.11-17 and 1 Kings 17.17-24
