 We may be able to identify with the widow of Zarephath who, in a time of a devastating, nation-wide crisis feels ready to die.  In the midst of this certainty that she will not make it through, God provides a companion and the hope that each day she and her household will have just enough to make it.  Pastor Amy invites us to find hope in that idea that, though we will never be completely satisfied, when we feel alone and desperate God will give us the resources we need to make to the end of each day. 

Sermon begins at 27:23
