Suffering of varying kinds marks all of our lives. For many, it will be a moment or season of intense suffering followed by unrelenting grief. Nancy and David Guthrie, having walked through the fires of suffering and grief themselves, are being used by God to counsel the church on how to get through grief together. I highly recommend listening to their seminar on this topic from the recent Gospel Coalition National Conference for Women.
From The Gospel Coalition website:
David Guthrie is the cofounder of Little Big Stuff Music a publisher of God-honoring, high-quality musicals for children’s choirs. Before launching Little Big Stuff, he worked for Word Music for 20 years.
Nancy Guthrie teaches the Bible at her home church, Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in Franklin, Tennessee, as well as at conferences around the country and internationally, and through books and DVDs in the Seeing Jesus in the Old Testamentseries. She is the host of the Help Me Teach the Bible podcast.
Together, the Guthries offer companionship and biblical insight to the grieving through Respite Retreats that they host for couples who have faced the death of child, through the GriefShare video series, and through books such as Holding on to Hope and Hearing Jesus Speak into Your Sorrow.
