When the cup is not taken away – Paul Cumin

 

Sermon text: 2 Sam. 16-18

 

Scripture reading: 2 Sam 18:33; Psalm 6.1-4, 6; Mark 15.33-34

 

The story of Absalom and David’s estrangement, the bitterness and distance, the betrayal and the revolt, none of it mitigates the depth of loss David feels when Absalom dies. This story and the way of Jesus can show us that though there may be no way out of our suffering, there is a way through.
