Chapman Family Tragedy

After an amazing night at LifeChurch I got a tweet from @thesoundbooth with a link to the heartbreaking news of a death in the Chapman family. Lot’s of questions I am sure a swirling around this event. You won’t find any answers here today other than this verse:

Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!

For who can know the Lord’s thoughts?
Who knows enough to give him advice?

And who has given him so much
that he needs to pay it back?

For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.

Romans 11:33-36

One interesting part of this story is that his daughter was adopted and the Chapmans believe strongly in adoption, even starting their own foundation. Maybe through this thousands more children will be brought into homes where Love rules and where God is worshiped.

Check out this song from SCC – it’s almost haunting to listen to now:

My buddy Bobby did an excellent post on this as well. Here’s the official (I think) site. Pray for the Chapman family today.
