Joy Comes in the Mourning – July 24, 2016

Joy Wahnefried preaching on June 28, 2015.Joy spoke this Sunday about finding joy even in the midst of all of the craziness going on in our world. Drawing from Psalm 30 and James 1:2-4, Joy noted that joy is not the denial that terrible things happen, but that those things do not get the last word. Joy can in fact be present in the midst of our laments, pain and grief, as the psalmist writes.

Joy quotes a favorite professor’s definition of joy as, “the stubborn insistence that despair and all of its forces will not win.”
