Responding to tragedy


Matthew 14:1-13

Prayer for the day:
God of comfort, let my arms be your arms as I sit with those who are grieving. Give me words to say when there are no words; may I be a listening ear to all that needs to be spoken.

Question for reflection:

What was the most helpful thing someone said to you as you experienced grief? The least helpful? What have you learned from those experiences?

~ Donna Kline, Director of Denominational Deacon Ministry
