I have a little girl who is six years old, in first grade. She was born in the same month as several of the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy.


Journaling includes lyrics to the song "Friend of Sinners," recorded by Red Mountain Music. The original text was written by Augustus Toplady. It's more than worth downloading and listening to.


Redeemer! Whither should I flee,
Or how escape the wrath to come?
The weary sinner flies to thee
For shelter from impending doom;
Smile on me, gracious Lord,
And show thyself the Friend of sinners now
Smile on me, gracious Lord,
And show thyself the Friend of sinners now.


Beneath the shadow of thy cross
The heavy laden soul finds rest;
I would esteem the world but dross,
So I might be of Christ possessed.
I'd seek my every joy in thee,
Be thou both life and light to me.


Close to the highly shameful tree,
Jesus, my humbled soul would cleave;
Despised and crucified with thee,
With thee resolved to die and live;
This prayer and this ambition mine,
Living and dying to be thine.


There fastened to the rugged wood
By holy love's resistless chain,
And life deriving from thy blood,
Never to wander wide again,
There may I bow my suppliant knee,
And own no other Lord but thee.
Smile on me, gracious Lord,
And show thyself the Friend of sinners now.





This has been another sad December day, a day that young children and their teachers lost their lives at the hand of a criminal.


“If a rescue operation like the incarnation was necessary for our salvation, then we must be desperate for rescue,” said our pastor today.


Lord God, we are desperate for rescue.
