Some Questions a Year After Her Child’s Death
Jessica Kelley wrote a post for The Jesus Event that we wanted to share with you. You might remember that last year we were getting to know Jessica as she lost her four year old son Henry just before Christmas. In this post, she reflects on the theology of the people around her concerning her son’s death. She has some questions she wants to ask them that she didn’t ask at the time. You can read the whole post here.
We love you dear Jessica!
From her blog post:
They celebrated the coming of Immanuel, God with us. And I wondered… how many of those, who celebrated the God-child, believed that our child died according to God’s perfect plan? Did they think the humble one, who once lay in a manger, inflicted our son with brain cancer? Those who had lifted us in prayer, did they believe this silent night… was a holy night? Was this despondent Christmas the one he’d planned for us?
