|The Living Should Take This to Heart|
|Jennifer Rhu, Guest Speaker|
In a section of the Hebrew Bible called Ecclesiastes, we find these words: 'It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting.' Today's guest preacher has been ministering in the 'house of mourning' for the past two years as a hospital and oncology chaplain. She shares her reflections about spiritual resiliency and the persistence of hope.
