Chaplain Brian Hamer, an active duty Navy Chaplain, joins Andy to talk about sacred music for pregnancy, infant, and child loss awareness month. They discuss where we find hope and truth in Scripture regarding the loss of a child, the words in Psalm 139 and Jeremiah 31:15-17, where we find these themes in sacred music, and the comfort these sacred songs convey.
