Like so many others across our nation, I felt stunned as I watched and read news reports about the bombings that killed and maimed people at the Boston Marathon. I grieve for those who lost loved ones and for the innocent victims who were so terribly injured in the blasts.
We don’t know all of the details about who did this or why. But the one thing we can be sure of is that God is our refuge and strength during times of trouble and that God loves all of those who are suffering.
I encourage everyone to join me in praying for the victims and their families, the medical professionals who are working to save the lives of the injured and for investigators who are tasked with finding the perpetrators and bringing them to justice.
