Hour 1: Weeping with Hope

Another shooting, another city, another community grieving and learning how to pick up the pieces.  On Tuesday, Desiring God guest contributor, Janel Barr joins Mornings with Eric and Brigitte to share from her heart what it was like to realize that this time, the community grieving this tragedy was hers, the one where she and her husband are raising their four young children, all seven and under.  Janel's hope comes from knowing who God is-- that He "is our refuge and strength" (Psalm 46:1)-- and what He has done to save sinners like us.
