How Long?

ChurchPastor's Blog

Psalm 13 is a prayer of lament to God that asks “How long?”  How long must our struggles, pain, hardship, and disasters continue?   We’ve all been in the midst and asked the question of God–even with tears and anger. 

 We are hearing the anguished question from the students who witnessed and survived the shooting in Parkland, FL on Feb 14.  The irony that Wednesday was Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday.  The contrast is stark and hard to fathom.   

 Why does injustice, terror, oppression, and fear exist?  How long will it last?  Will we allow God to lead us forward into peace and justice?  Come and be with us Sunday!

 Wanting to be a part of God’s love and justice flowing down,
