The Monsoon Playlist

Five Songs for the Grieving Christian

Five Songs for the Grieving Christian

One of the great inevitable truths of life is death. While it is comforting to know that death is not an end but a beginning—Romans 8:38 tells us that death will never be able to separate us from God’s love—it is difficult to imagine life without a recently departed loved one. For instance, my grandaunt passed away the other day […]

When this happens, we can trust that this may be God prompting us to set things straight […]
