My blog friend Adam McHugh posted links to a couple of his sermons, and having never heard him preach, I gave one a listen. Whoa. Turns out my blog friend Adam McHugh is QUITE the preacher. Here is a sermon he gave at Irvine Presbyterian on pain and suffering. Adam was — at the time he gave it — a hospice chaplain, and is neither maudlin nor cavalier on the subject of pain and suffering. I urge you to give it a listen if you need some encouragement.
Edited to add…if the link above does not work for you, you can go to Adam’s blog, and click on the link that says “Irvine Presbyterian Church”.
