The other day while called to duty as a Fire/EMS chaplain I served as part of a wonderful team of people who together experienced the fire death of a small child. When it comes to such things I am prone to ask this question, "Why?"
"Why," is one of the questions as a person, a pastor, a chaplain that often I can not answer. However, as I look back over this past Sunday I can find some really heroic stuff that took place in the midst of that tragedy:
I can not answer the question "Why?" But, I can however point to a Community in the midst of pain, suffering, and tragedy, and say with a full heart of gratitude, honor, and grief,
"Well, now how about that?"
