Oh death, tell me where is your sting?

“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 1 Corinthians 15:55

How do you even begin to tell a child that it is okay when they just buried their mother? Where is peace? Where is joy? How does the church deal with tragedy?

The only answer I have ever found and the only answer I know is Jesus. In the Bible it says, “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18
Leneita Fix of More Than Dodgeball Ministry has an appropriate and insightful article on just how youth ministries can deal with tragedy.
