“God’s sovereignty means my son’s death is not meaningless; it’s not an accident. God is in control of all things, and that means his death is meaningful.”
Cameron Cole delivered a breakout message at The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference titled “Preparing Kids and Adults to Suffer: Truths That Comfort, Sustain, and Redeem in Tragedy.” From Psalm 130 and his experience of tragic loss, Cole addressed the process of continuing to trust in Jesus through deep pain and suffering. He emphasized the importance of a rich, biblical theology to prepare believers to suffer with great hope.
