Good morning, FPC family.

Yesterday, tragedy occurred in Uvalde, Texas.  Nineteen kids and two teachers died in a terrible school shooting.  We’re exasperated and discouraged at such another terrible tragedy.  When there are so few words, let’s find comfort in the words of Psalm 30:

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” 

In our loss and in our lament, God is with those who suffer today. 

Much remembering of the victims will take place in the coming days and weeks.  And as Memorial Day approaches, here’s a thought about remembering and sacrifice:

See you on Sunday.

In Christ,

Rev. Matt Nieman
