With the unexpected loss of a military husband comes so many questions. What will life look like now? Will light ever be able to penetrate the darkness again? The Apostle Paul reminds us of the surpassing power of God that brings light out of darkness and life out of death. This seminar, facilitated by an active duty Army chaplain who is intimately familiar with the questions and doubts of Gold Star Wives, will highlight the glory of Jesus. There will be opportunities to share hopes, fears, and accounts of God’s faithfulness with one another (2 Corinthians 4:6-12).
