Yesterday, I learned of the tragic death of Pastor Rick Warren’s son. My deepest sympathies goes out to him, his wife and their family. The loss of a child is never easy. My thoughts drifted back to the deaths in Sandy Hook, and elsewhere around the world. While it is true we will all die, incidents like these provide us with moments of reflection, and even bewilderment as to why this had to happen this way. This is not the time for speculation as to the reasons but a time for comfort and support. So pause a moment and send up a prayer for this family who is walking through the shadow of death. Ask our Lord to strengthen and comfort them as only He can.
