Series: Pentecost

Category: Pentecost

Passage: Mark 8:27-38

Speaker: Rev. Lauren RE Larkin

On the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Rev. Lauren looks back at the momentous events of that day and the weeks that followed. As a people, we were hurting. Many questioned whether faith was enough; whether God cared at all. Rev. Lauren brings us these comforting words:

"Our God knows suffering; our God is the suffering God, our God dwells amongst suffering. This is one of the most radical things about the Church’s gospel proclamation: Jesus the Christ, God of very God, suffered in solidarity with the suffering and brings life to them."
