Our hearts have been broken by the recent rampages in New York and Texas. For those in New York, apparently targeted simply because of the color of their skin, it is especially heinous. For those in Texas, as a parent, I cannot imagine the loss, pain, heartache, and hopelessness those families must be feeling. Any violent death is horrendous, but for those so young to die so senselessly is beyond description. Our hearts and prayers go out to each of these families as they try to process the horrible effects of sin as we live in this fallen world.
Please remember in your prayers the pastors, churches, and Christ followers in Buffalo and Uvalde. Specifically, please join me in praying that they would bring the "...peace of God, which transcends all understanding…” and that it would “…guard [their] hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." (Phil. 4:7)
