Hope for the Widow(er)
Last Sunday was All Saints, a service to remember those who God called to Himself through death. This Sunday’s message comes from 1 Kings 17:8-16, Elijah and the Widow Zerephath. Widows and widowers are those who are left behind in death. They are women and men who have to carry on with life, except now they have to do it without their spouse. Widows and widowers are more than people to be pitied, or people whom God is closely concerned for. Widows and widowers offer wisdom and contribution to the faith life of the Church.
