Exempt from Pain?

This (it is also below, please pause music on the right first) is the link to hear my brother-in-law's words of hope at my 18 yr old nephew Stephen's funeral. The words the pastor spoke afterwards on wrestling with God did my heart good. We all think we go to the best church and aren't too impressed when we go to someone else's church but I was happily surprised by Exodus Church in Bloomington, Indiana. They take church out of the box but manage to use everything the box is made of to repackage not only the worship service but the body of Christ into truth to a hurting world. Matt Nussbaum's words that "Even a friend of Jesus is not exempt from pain" held no bitterness or scorn but comfort in how much God is for us.
