A Fellowship of Suffering

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

There is something about suffering that longs for someone to sit with us through the pain. It’s the fellowship of suffering. It’s the words “you are not alone” put into action. … More than a card or a casserole, the familiar, patient presence of another says to us “it’s too much for you to bear, but I will be with you, I will sit with you.”
