Tragedy in our Community and Resources
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” II Corinthians 1: 3-4
“Family and Friends of Good Sam,
We always think tragedy won’t hit close to home, until it does. There is always a great urge to ask “why,” to search out the cause and to assign blame. There is a time and a place for each of those responses, but right now I invite you to take stock of the gifts and resources; love, care and community support that we must have.
The apostle Paul reminds us, one primary purpose we have from Christ is to comfort others with the same care we have received from God. For this moment is a poignant time for love and mercy. Please note the resources below for topics and ideas that may assist you in difficult conversations with family and youth. I am also available to visit with you one-on-one or with your family.”
