though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

Our little community has been hard hit lately. I suppose it started with R.J. who went in June to celebrate his mother's birthday, only to celebrate her homegoing instead. Then three weeks ago it was R&K, losing their unborn child. The next day it was M.F. receiving word her father was dying; they are now in Montana celebrating his Final Release from this life. This week it was W.L., finding out his nephew died of a heart attack in the middle of the night on Wednesday.

And today. . .we hear that 15-year-old P.A. was hit and killed by an SUV in Florida last night.

If you're the praying type, lift up our church and those who grieve. There are yet many tears to be shed, and a long time before many hallelujahs may be sung.

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy.
