Hope for the Grieving — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole BannerThis past week the nation was shocked by the senseless murders of forty nine people in a nightclub in Orlando. Being heralded as the worst mass shooting in modern U. S. history, the victims and the families are in a state of shock with many unanswered questions. As new details come to light in these few days, more questions are still being asked. “Why?” being the most prevalent.

Some have used the events to harp on the behavior of the individuals because of their participation in a homosexual lifestyle. Others have used the events to talk more about gun control and anti-terrorism acts. Other still use the event for their own agenda whatever that may be. Yet in the midst of this, are forty nine families forever changed by a violent act. What about them? How are they going to pick up the pieces of their lives now that their loved ones are gone?

How can grieving families, whether from the Orlando victims or anyone else who has had a loved taken away, find hope?

The Parker J Cole Show — The God of Comfort

Parker J Cole Banner

It wasn’t too long ago that Creflo Dollar came under intense scrutiny when his church organization created a fund to garner millions of dollars for a plane. This struck a lot of non-believers as a form of excess that has, not surprisingly, become synonymous with Western Christianity.

There is an alarming trend in today’s Westernized version of Christianity to see ‘comfort’ wrapped up in the storing up and accumulation of the material world. We all have a tendency to want the comforts of this world rather than the hope and peace of God’s comfort. Please understand, there’s nothing wrong with wanting these things but perhaps the focus for our New Year is to have the comfort of God.

What does that mean? Isn’t God going to supply all our needs? Why shouldn’t we want to be comfortable?

Tune in as I share my thoughts on the God of Comfort and what that means. You can call in at 646-668-8485, press 1 to be live on air. Or, click on the link here:  http://tobtr.com/8229519. Tune In!
