Friday evening 7/20

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the community in Aurora, Colorado, who have had their lives torn apart by the violence early this morning.  It seems like this tragedy is touching lives and hearts all across our nation, from those whose friends or loved ones were injured or killed to those---like me---who are horrified that this terror was committed by one of us, an American.  We pray that these families will draw closer to God because of this and that justice will be served.  I hope that we will continue to see the people of this city pull together to help each other move through the shock and pain of this deep hurt.  I also hope that, in their efforts to cover this story and explain the shooter's motives, the media will be careful of the victims' families' feelings and will temper their words with compassion.  God be with each of them and you as well.  Kirsten

Isaiah 25: 8a  "He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces."
