Sorrow Transformed to Joy

This Sunday, elder-in-training Nick Loschiavo will continue in chapter 16 and see that on the heels of Jesus' death, Jesus continues to prepare and equip His disciples for life after He leaves. Jesus leaves them with the assurance of hope that though they sorrow now because of His leaving, their sorrow will be transformed into joy.
We will see how we as Christians today can draw from the hope that Jesus provides in chapter 16 -- the hope that our sorrows can and will be transformed into authentic joy.
