if you pray...

... could you pray for us and our church in the next couple of days?

Tomorrow will be an emotional day when we'll announce the birth of a baby (please God) and the death of a small child.

Andrew has put our current series on hold for a week so he can speak about death and grief. The funeral is on Monday.

I am speaking to the kids both at church tomorrow and at the funeral on Monday. Please pray that my words will be true, sensitive and helpful to both the kids and the adults. Also pray that I'll be able to get the words out through my own tears.

Please pray for the grieving family that God will be real and present to them.
