Last week we heard of the death of Matthew Warren, son of the Saddleback Church pastor, Rick. Our prayers join those of all the Christian community in the sadness and loss and heartbreak of it all. God means for all His children to have abundant lives, not overshadowed by the depressions that stalk far too many of us.
May Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, and the God of comfort be with the Warren family at this time of loss beyond words. God bless all who suffer mental illness and their loved ones who work so hard to find ways to express their love.
