Grief is an unavoidable part of being created as image bearers of God. Our God is a God who experiences grief and knows the depths of sorrow. In this sermon series, we’re going to see what we can learn about God and about ourselves through observing the times in scripture when God grieves.
Wisdom is an important concept in the Bible with the Hebrew word for wisdom showing up over 200 times in the Old Testament! In this series we will be exploring the concept of Biblical wisdom with a particular focus on the books Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Job.
