A Terrible Day in Boston


We are all affected by the bombs that went off  today in our city.  Boston and the Boston Marathon will never be the same.  People lost their lives and many people where injured.  This day will be marked as a terrible day.


My wife Gina and son Alexander were only a block away and felt the blast.  I was out of town and raced back to our apartment just a few blocks from the bomb sites.  I was grateful when my family was all gathered in our home.


We need to pray for our city and those deeply effected by this event. God can bring peace in the midst of tragedy.  That is our prayer.


We will no doubt be asked and ask ourselves, why did this happen.  Why are so many innocent people suffering?  These questions don't always have answers.  We need to remember God is with us, with those who suffer, with those who are innocent.  God is our strength and when there is great insecurity, God is secure.


These times when I'm not sure how to pray, then I go to the book of prayers  (Psalms).  Here are a few:


Pour out your hearts to God, for He is our refuge.   Psalm 62:8


The Lord is close to the broken hearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. 

     Ps 34:18


When I am afraid, I will trust in you. Ps. 56:3


Common Church is a church in the heart of the city of Boston.  We will help in any way that we can to care, bring clarity and pray. 


Grace and Peace
