Pastor Shot

I didn't see the news last night, so I didn't hear about the shooting of the Baptist pastor during church service until just a few minutes ago. My husband and I have been in the ministry for over 30 years. This event doesn't strike fear in my heart but it does strike a deep note of sorrow. Humanly speaking, this seems like a terrible waste and an awful hardship for his family and church.

But God sees all pictures and all sides, and He makes no mistakes. His Word says precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. May God give this pastor's family and friends the comfort only He can give.

God will be glorified through this. When church attacks itself from within ... it tends to disentigrate. But when it is attacked from without ... it thrives.

thank you for your kind words on my blog.

Nothing makes Christians stronger than some adversity. My heart broke when I heard the news. We have a guy who patrols our parking lot and building, etc., during the morning service now. Too many doors open to our building, I think.
