Adult Children Suffer When Parents Divorce

Children, no matter how old they are, have a difficult time when they discover their parents have decided to divorce. Adults also hurt when their parents split up. A pastor learns his parents will end their marriage after more than 40 years, and it hurts. He writes of his pain and grief, and finding grace to get through this difficult point in his life. “Grace always runs downhill, meeting us at the bottom, not the top.” No one is immune from suffering in this life, even those who are called to do God’s work.
