When Darkness Closes In: Processing a Tragedy

title_slide2The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut has touched – and shattered – many lives. Last weekend in worship and ABC, the pastors of Concordia offered some thoughts on this tragedy in light of God’s Word and promises. You can check out Pastor Tucker’s message and my Adult Bible Class below.

We pray that God would comfort and keep all those devastated by this terrible travesty. And may the families find their solace and hope in God’s promise of the resurrection of the dead to eternal life!

When Darkness Closes In: Processing a Tragedy

Bethlehem StarPlease take a moment and read this brief important note from Pastor Bill Tucker and then make plans to join us for worship tomorrow at Concordia at 8, 9:30, or 11 am.

Beloved Concordia Family,

The events of Friday in Connecticut have shocked and appalled all of us.  Our hearts are broken for the children and families lost…and for those whose lives will never be the same.  I cannot imagine a person anywhere in the world who hears of this terrible tragedy that does not feel grief over what has happened.

In the wake of these events and the terrible grief we are all feeling, Pastor Zach and I have decided to divert from the planned messages for ABC and Worship tomorrow.  Instead, we will talk about what has happened and address three questions:

1.     Why?
2.     What about the precious children who lost their lives?
3.     What can we do now?

Please plan to join us.  In these times of deep darkness, we must cling to our faith and turn to our God.  Please invite your loved ones and friends to join us, as well.

You are loved!

Pastor Bill
