Prayer Request

Hi friends...
No fancy photo or long post today.

I may be absent from this space for a few days.  I have some posts scheduled to go up but my usual presence may be minimum.

As many of you know, I work for a rather large church in Reading, PA.  On Sunday night, our lead pastor and his wife were involved in a very serious motorcycle accident.  They also happen to be my best friend's in laws, so this has been especially close to home.  Our Pastor, Bryan, is in the hospital in stable but critical condition, however, his wife, Lynn, did not survive.  Our hearts are breaking as we pray and manage communication to our church body.

We covet your prayers as our church community is in deep mourning.  While we have hope for Bryan's recovery, we are also grieved at the loss of Lynn.  We know that she is not sad, yet rejoicing in Heaven with her Lord and Savior, and we know that, as Bryan always says, you can't threaten a Christian with Heaven, so we are happy for her and know we'll be with her again someday.

If you'd like to read more, you can see the newspaper article here and stay up to date on our church's Facebook page here.

Thank you so much, friends.

Much love.
