A Look at Death Through Faith

What Mom Wants You to Know...

Mom's Bible - Psalm 139
A wise friend recently described the absence we face when a loved one dies like a missing limb in our lives.  Dealing with the aftermath of deep loss, learning to live without someone who is a part of who you are, it hurts beyond what you could ever imagine until you have been through it.  It's the worst.  And yet faith in Jesus, His empty tomb, assures us that the "worst is not the last (Rev. Gary Bullard)."

Honoring Charleston's Church Shooting Victims With Our Father's Glory In the Story

I headed to church Wednesday to pick up my son.  His middle school youth group was celebrating summer with an outdoor movie night on the front lawn.  I got there a little early, so I sat down on the steps of the historical sanctuary to enjoy a few minutes of quiet in the thick heat of the night.  The sounds of nature serenaded me.  It was peaceful, and I was thankful.
