Services on Sorrow

These services were both written after difficult seasons: one near the one-year anniversary of when our society felt the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the other after the Parkland, Florida shooting in 2018. They provide resources for you or your church family as you aim to reflect, pray and respond to the events of the world.
