Today’s sermon was a message born out of adversity.  It certainly may be considered one that was fitting for Easter as it focused on the gift of God in the person of His Son, Jesus, however the focus of the message delivered by our pastor, Elder Hoskins, was on the anguish of loss for a parent in losing a child.  Our pastor uses the word of God to establish that God does feel grief, that God has called upon people to know how he feels, and that God went through the pain of that loss for us.
