A Word From Our Senior Leader
New Life family, the horror of yesterday’s shooting is just beginning to settle in with most of us. Evil is very real. Evil struck at our home on Friday in a way we have never known before. No one is immune from suffering the consequences of a madman.
There seems like more questions today than answers. Why? What could have been done? Where was God? I have no nice platitude or clever saying today to post. Words seem so inadequate.
I’m angry. I’m inconsolable. I’m fed up. I’m troubled in a way that is not normally like me. I just want to lament…. and weep…and sit quietly and grieve.
Today, our city needs us. Jesus needs is to be his hands and feet to embrace a suffering community. Solidarity. Compassion. Presence… and maybe give a little bit of hope. We love Virginia Beach.
Jesus help us. Only you. Have mercy.
Dr. Daniel Backens
