I learned of a tragedy that happened this past Sunday and ask for your prayers. The Hart family was killed, including father, mother (Christy), daughter, and two foster girls, after attending worship at Custer Road UMC in Plano. I met Christy briefly in the last few months as she worked as a consultant for Lovers Lane UMC. Please be in prayer for Christy and her husband's immediate family. Please pray also for their church family at Custer Road UMC. Pray for the clergy and staff as they receive many calls, visits, and questions about processing the grief. Please pray for Rev. Ron Henderson, senior pastor at Custer Road UMC, as he leads the congregation through this incredibly difficult time. Please pray for the driver of the car who hit the Hart family and survived the wreck. Custer Road UMC has posted the obituaries of the family and they can be found here.
As the Apostle Paul says in Romans 8, "39For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
