Rabbit Trails (7/21/12)

Only two stories this week.

We live in a fallen world, and tragedy is always close at hand. There are rarely any explanations of why these things happens. Sometimes people ask, “Where was God when this happened?” All I can say is that he was in the same place he was when his own Son went to the cross to prepare the way for the day when every tear will be wiped away.

The shooting of over 58 people in a Colorado movie theatre is just devastating. I’m not sure what I can say on the subject. We pray God’s grace and comfort for all those touched by this.

This story out of Nigeria about Christians being murdered and the horrible burning of 50 Christians in the home of their pastor has really saddened me this week. Pray for the peace of Africa.
