Dear brothers and sisters,
It is with heavy hearts that we receive the news of another violent tragedy, this time while our brothers and sisters in Christ were gathered to worship our Lord at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX. As they were gathered to lift their prayers like incense to God, I encourage us to do likewise. In our prayers, let's ask our Lord to have mercy on them and draw them into His loving presence. Ask Him also to transform our hearts that we might become vessels of His transformational love in a world in much need of healing. May God grant a peaceful repose to those who lost their lives and comfort to those who mourn their loss.
