We could put many labels on this particular year, but I would be a proponent for “mournful” or “grief-filled” to be in the running. Everywhere we look, there’s something that can and should be mourned. I think taking some time to mourn as we enter into the final stretch of the year would likely do us some good.
What have you mourned this year?
How has grieving affected your life? How has it affected the church?
