Noted evangelist and author Rick Warren returned to the pulpit recently,

four months after his son’s suicide death.

Warren and his wife Kay retreated from public life in April in order to grieve in private for their son Matthew, 27, who died at his home. Matthew Warren was one of the couple’s four children.

NBC’s Today Show featured a segment on Warren’s return. The segment included excerpts from his sermon at Saddleback Valley Community Church in California.

Here’s a link to the video segment:
