Consoling One Another

This Sunday, the Peace Prayer of St Francis invites us to claim our power to console one another.  The amazing thing is that our own sorrows, struggles and trials can be used by God to bring healing, wholeness, and relief to others.  This happens when we both receive God’s love, healing grace, and mercy and also allow it to flow through us to others.  Our text is from 2 Corinthians 1:3-4. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all consolation, who consoles us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to console those who are in any affliction with the consolation with which we ourselves are consoled by God.”  Click on the title to listen to Pastor Ernie’s sermon “Consoling One Another”
