pastoral message – mourning into joy 1/5/2020

mourning into joy – recorded 1/5/2020

How do we move from mourning to joy? The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom:

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
    all those who practice it have a good understanding.
    His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 (NRSV)

Action and understanding go together. the concept of Han – Asian concept of sin, wound, frustrated hope. Andrew Sung Park in his book, The Wounded Heart of God, argues that Christian concept of sin is lacking an account of salvation for victims. Jesus sympathizes with our pain is with us.
