Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17

Not a sewing post---just had a heavy heart. My family has close ties to Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU), formerly Roanoke Bible College. It's my daughter & son-in-law's alma mater and we've known so many who attended or are attending this fine school. This past weekend a student was killed in a shooting in the dorm that is still under investigation. There is a person of interest, also a student there, but so much is still not known about the circumstances. So many questions. The one I keep hearing most often is 'why God would allow this to happen to Christians'. I have no magic answer; I don't know that anyone does. All I can say for sure is being a Christian doesn't exclude you from tragedy. Anyone who comes to Christianity to escape tragedy will not. Bad things will always happen. But Christianity will give the comfort to deal with it. I honestly don't know how those who don't know God cope.
Mid-Atlantic Christian University; Elizabeth City North Carolina has issued "A CALL TO PRAYER"; at 7:30 in the Blanton Center on campus Thursday evening October 7. All are invited to attend this most special service of prayer for the MACU family. If you can not attend, will you please take some time during that hour to lift up a prayer? God Bless MACU, it's leaders, faculty & staff and it's dear students. Amen.
