Philip Yancey has been a favorite author of mine for some time. I just love his spirituality – no judgment – he seems to have some special insights about God, albeit most times admitting that God is beyond our understanding. I had the opportunity to hear him speak when he came to a nearby church a few weeks ago. He spoke about Newtown, pain, suffering, loss, and ‘where is God when is hurts’, and many of the parents and first responders were there because Sandy Hook is just a few miles away.
I was thrilled to see that the church put his talks online. If you have about 45 minutes, please watch this – you won’t regret it!
