Yarnell Fire Firefighter Loss

July 2013

In the wake of the tragic loss of the 19 Firefighters this last week we can wonder “Where was God when this was happening?”  This is when we are glad that we have faith in a God who knows what He is doing!  A God who watches over everything, and even though He doesn’t plan these events or cause them to happen, He knows, He cares and He loves those that have suffered and are suffering.  God will show us, in His time, what we need to do to carry on.

The words of Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of Why Bad things Happen to Good People help to reassure me…. we hope they will do the same for you.

“Is there an answer to the question of why bad things happen to good people?…The response would be…to forgive the world for not being perfect, to forgive God for not making a better world, to reach out to the people around us, and to go on living despite it all…no longer asking why something happened, but asking how we will respond, what we intend to do now that it has happened.”
Harold S. Kushner
