You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Bénis soient ceux qui supportent le chagrin,
car ils seront réconfortés.

Ceux qui sèment dans les larmes
feront la moisson dans la joie.
Ils s'en vont et pleurent
et portent la semence noble,
et viennent avec joie
et apportent leurs gerbes.


Matthieu 5:4 ; Psaume 126, 5:6

Car toute chair est comme l'herbe
et toute la gloire de l'homme
comme la fleur de l'herbe.
L'herbe se dessèche
et la fleur tombe.

Aussi soyez patients, chers frères,
jusqu'à l'arrivée du Seigneur.
Regardez, un cultivateur attend
les fruits délicieux de la terre
et est patient à ce sujet, jusqu'à ce qu'il ait reçu
la pluie du printemps et la pluie de l'automne.
Aussi soyez patients.

Car toute chair est comme l'herbe
et toute la gloire de l'homme
comme la fleur de l'herbe.
L'herbe se dessèche
et la fleur tombe.

Mais la parole du Seigneur demeure pour l'éternité.

Les libérés du Seigneur reviendront,
et vers Sion viendront avec des cris de joie :
une joie éternelle sera sur leurs têtes ;
La joie et le bonheur les saisiront
et le chagrin et les gémissements doivent s'éloigner.

Les libérés du Seigneur reviendront,
et vers Sion viendront avec des cris de joie :
une joie éternelle sera sur leurs têtes ;
une joie éternelle.

Que tes demeures sont adorables, Seigneur Sabaoth !
Mon âme réclame et soupire
après le parvis du Seigneur ;
mon corps et mon âme se réjouissent
en le Dieu vivant.

Que tes demeures sont adorables, Seigneur Sabaoth !
Heureux sont ceux qui habitent dans ta maison,
ils te louent pour toujours.
Que tes demeures sont adorables !

Vous avez maintenant du chagrin ;
mais je vous verrai à nouveau
et votre cœur se réjouira
et votre joie personne ne pourra vous la prendre.
Je vous consolerai
comme on est consolé par sa mère.

Regardez-moi :
Je n'ai eu qu'un peu de temps de peine et de travail
et j'ai trouvé un grand réconfort.
Je vous consolerai
comme on est consolé par sa mère.

Vous avez maintenant du chagrin ;
mais je vous verrai à nouveau
et votre cœur se réjouira
et votre joie personne ne pourra vous la prendre.
Je vous consolerai
comme on est consolé par sa mère.

Car nous n'avons pas ici de cité permanente,
mais nous cherchons celle de l'avenir.

Regardez, je vous dis un mystère :
nous n'allons pas tous mourir,
mais nous serons tous transformés,
et soudain, en un clin d'œil,
au son du dernier trombone.
car le trombone résonnera,
et les morts ressusciteront imputrescibles,
et nous serons transformés.
Alors sera accomplie
la parole qui a été écrite :
la mort est engloutie dans la victoire.
Mort, où est ton aiguillon ?
Enfer, où est ta victoire ?

Seigneur, tu es digne de recevoir
louange, honneur et gloire,
car tu as créé toutes les choses,
et à travers ta volonté elles
existent et ont été créées.

Corinthiens I 15:51-55
