Passage: luke 7.11-17

Bible Text: luke 7.11-17 | Preacher: Pastor Jon Jolly | Series: Compassion | Imagine the scene. You’re in a crowd of loads of pretty upbeat,happy,smiley people. In the distance you see a large crowd approaching you. As you get nearer, the cheers and laughter in your crowd suddenly start to lower to the point of uncanny silence. You’ve stumbled across a funeral procession. A poor woman, a widow in fact has lost her one and only son. One minute you were in triumph now you’re facing tragedy straight on. There’s no where to run. What would you do? What would you say? How would you feel? listen to how Jesus responds…it’ll shock you…
