A Life Well Lived

This past Friday, a young man we know named Sam passed away in a car accident. Sam’s brother and sister-in-law are very good friends of ours, as are his cousins. Yesterday there was a memorial service for Sam, during which this amazing video was shown of his testimony…I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch this video and that you will be inspired, as I am, to take a look at your own life and where you are at in your relationship with God, and challenged to “let your light shine”.



Last night a woman from our church was killed in a tragic hit-and-run situation at a store not too far from here. The Star Tribune reported on it here.

I don’t know the family well at all, but I know she leaves behind a husband and I believe a grown son. Also, our church is fairly small, and the impact will be deep. Please pray for comfort and peace for all who are hurting – especially at this time of the year.
