Newtown: God’s care is our comfort in fear and tragedy
On Friday December 14, 26 people, including twenty children, were gunned down in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. As we grieve this tragic loss of life, we also feel afraid and wonder how to think about God in all of this.
Yesterday, Alasdair Groves, assistant faculty at CCEF, preached a sermon on Exodus 16. In this passage, the Israelites are wandering in the desert and question God about their lack of food. They fear for their survival and have concerns about God and his plans. With the Connecticut shootings fresh in his mind, Alasdair was able to draw some helpful parallels between the Israelites’ questions and ours.
We hope you will be blessed as this sermon points to the goodness of God who continually cares for us. Alasdair reminds us that as we cast our anxieties on God, we are more able to trust him for the future and be a people of joy in the midst of a dark world.
