Bible Text: Malachi 2:13–16 | Preacher: Dr. Bill Tenny-Brittian | Series: Tragedy: Picking Up the Pieces | Divorce happens. It’s not supposed to happen, but it happens. The good news is that the divorce rate has recently been falling. The bad news is that fewer people “believe” in marriage anymore, so as goes the marriage rate, so goes the divorce rate. Still, when it happens to you, it can be devastating. All the hopes and dreams of what could have been are suddenly gone. And whether you’re the one who decided to opt out or the one who lost out, the ache goes deep. Add to that the guilt and shame that creeps up on you if you dare show your face at church again it’s no wonder it’s difficult to pick up the pieces when this tragedy strikes.
