Comfort in the Wake of National or International Disasters
August 9, 2013 • Psalm 46

At public memorial services more often than not a Jewish rabbi or a Christian minister will be asked to read Psalm 46 as part of the service. What makes this passage one of the Bible’s most comforting of all psalms?
