- John Mark Jones - "The Fall of the House of David" (August 13, 2000)
The life of David bears witness to the great suffering and tragedy that is an inevitable part of human life. And while the story does not offer the false hope that, if you pray hard enough, God will spare you this suffering, it does remind us that God will reveal God's self to us in our most trying hours, and that can be enough. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Sermon start time: (Part 1) 00:58. Sermon end time: (Part 1) 22:28.
Key quotation: “I would not dare tell you simply to pray to God and that God will make all things right for you, because that is a lie. God will not make all things right for you, or for me, or for anyone else. But I will tell you that somehow, in ways I neither understand nor can explain adequately, God does make God’s presence known to us in time of grief. And somehow God’s presence sees us through our darkest hours.”
