Healing from Grief
Today we are concluding our current sermon series, “The Recovery Room.” We have been addressing healing from all the trauma that the last year has induced. This morning we’re going to focus on healing from grief. Senior Associate Pastor Fred Rodkey brings the message this morning centered around Luke 18:35-42.
