Today I am overwhelmed with grief as I think about the lives that were lost today in Connecticut. I am clear that this is a reflection of the brokenness of humanity. As we journey through the season of Advent we embrace the journey expecting God’s ultimate gift of grace yet we should not be so consumed with our celebration that we forget there are many people who live without hope. I am more committed to tell the Good News because of the grief I am experiencing as I wait for God’s love, peace,hope and joy.
