As a father of four children, the oldest one in first grade and the youngest one born just last week, my heart has been profoundly heavy since I first heard of the heinous massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. Like many others, I’m sure, my emotions have swung from sadness to anger and from shock to disbelief. Along with many others, I’ve found myself asking, “How do we respond to the story of a 20-year-old young man walking into an elementary school and in a matter of moments murdering 28 people, including 20 children? How do we react to such unexplainable horror amidst such indescribable grief?”
We had an awesome Christmas party this past Sunday at “A Place to Share”. The food was catered by Gabe’s Downtown in Villa Rica (Thanks Gabe!). Stevie has uploaded the pictures to the SmugMug page and you can go there to download any that you want. Here is the big group shot in front of the barn…
This is a powerful poem written and read by John Piper about Herod’s slaughter of all the boys in Bethlehem under 2 years old (Matthew Chapter 2).
This is a great video that shows the impact of the gospel over several generations in the head-hunting primitive Sawi people. The book that chronicles the entire story is called Peace Child and it reads like an adventure novel. Highly recommended! Turn on HD and watch it full screen if you have a fast internet connection.
Maybe the best working definition of faith I have ever read-
True faith is not the intellectual ability to visualize unseen things to the satisfaction of our imperfect minds; it is rather the moral power to trust Christ. To be contented and unafraid when going on a journey with his father the child need not be able to imagine events; he need but know the father. Our earthly lives are one shining web of golden mystery which we experience without understanding, how much more our life in the Spirit. Jesus Christ is our all in all. We need but trust Him and He will take care of the rest. Possibly it is because of my own innate dullness that I have found such deep satisfaction in these words of the prophet: “I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them” (Isa. 42:16). God has not failed me in this world; I can trust Him for the world to come. (AW Tozer)
