Watching the TV and listening to the radio has been heartbreaking over the past few days. It is impossible to find the right words to comfort the families who have suffered such a terrible loss in Newtown, Connecticut. Our collective prayers go out to them. May God wrap His arms around them as they go through the roller coaster of grief and healing in the days, months and years ahead. May God be visible to them through the words and actions of the people around them, and through the memories of their loved ones. Let us all hold our friends and family members a little closer, and remember what a gift we are to each other. God has put each of us here to build His kingdom in whatever way we can, no matter how small we think our contribution may be.
