Friday in Lent 4


For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
--Romans 8:38-39

O God, you have given us the Good News of your abounding love in your Son Jesus Christ: So fill our hearts with thankfulness that we may rejoice to proclaim the good tidings we have received; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

i have held on to this passage of Scripture through some of the roughest parts of my path- and believe me 'unpaved' and 'rocky' don't quite describe them.

bless you for posting these verses now when so many of us are aching and in tears for Lisa and Ian

thanks Paul

Prayers for Lisa.

That she may find, as I did, that awful can become awe full.

David, these verses certainly jump out at us in this current context. I have just felt so sad all day and there seems to be a global heartache on their behalf.
