Among Women Espresso Shot #38: Blessed are those who mourn

Welcome to Episode 38 of Among Women “Espresso Shot”
– a short strong coffee break of faith sharing and teaching from Pat Gohn.

Today’s topic: The Beatitudes – “Blessed are those who mourn.”

In this espresso shot, I begin a look at the second Beatitude from Matthew 5:4: “Blessed are those who mourn… for they shall be comforted.”

This podcast examines the inspiration we have in Jesus with respect to mourning. And we look at how we deal with this as Christians, and how we serve those who mourn. Finally we see how this beatitude implicitly points us to the hope of heaven.
