My little miracle baby was stillborn on Christmas eve, 2012. I am awake having a sudden attack of grief, and am alone since my wonderful husband has to get up very very early tomorrow for work. I began looking for scriptural comfort and found your message on youtube.
I attend a reformed Presbyterian church in Kansas, United States. I have had great comfort and teaching from our church; but your words were a comforting refresher, put in such a way as to help me calm down. I just wanted to thank you.
Fascinating how I could receive scriptures and words of comfort from a pastor on the other side of the world. The Body is amazing.
I sent you a friend request, but I respectfully understand if nothing is to be served by us being facebook friends! Gratefully, in Christ,
I thought how correct you were when you said in your sermon that these types of loss happen all too often. It is so sad but true. I didn't realize how common umbilical cord stillbirths were, although I did know the commonality of miscarriages (no less tragic). After mine, people came out of the woodwork to say it had happened to them.
I am deeply grateful that you sought out to comfort and teach in light of this horrible circumstance. It is not often discussed in such open terms. And I appreciate the successful effort to guide and teach in tandem with comfort. So many leaders (luckily not at my church) shy away from the gentle teaching in tough circumstances.
Thank you for your kind words and prayers. I am grateful! I can't wait until my husband is home from work today so I can share your sermon with him.
