Two babies died.
Two mums have breast cancer. One in advanced stage.
One baby was born profoundly deaf.
Another with down syndrome.
We have a child suffering from multiple benign tumours.
Another in remission from cancer.
We have kids suffering from anxiety and depression.
And a kid was hit by a car.
Kids live in a broken world. What do you do with all this pain and suffering?"
Sandy Galea heads up the children's ministry at MBM Rooty Hill and also the wonderful Kidswise kids ministry program used by so many churches.
Sandy's been deeply involved the last few years in helping children deal with grief: the grief of kids loosing their mother, a child diagnosed with cancer, severely disabled children, and death, suffering and pain.
This is an important episode of The Pastor's Heart to share with your kids and youth leaders.
