Appropriate words are hard to come by tonight. What is really worth saying after the horrible event at Sandy Hook Elementary? As teachers we are shaken to our core. I know we have all cried many tears for the loss of those innocent children and women and in our anger, fear and despair may be questioning God's love for us. Why would God allow such suffering? Many years ago I read some amazing books on the topic. One was written by Joni Tada who was paralyzed in a diving accident. Her book, When God Weeps, is an examination of the purpose of suffering and is not an easy read.
I will end this Sunday's words with Point of Grace and their amazing song, Immanuel.
Our God is with us. He has has not left us. And He never will.
Wishing you comfort in your suffering. -Doris
