God at Work

Anyone who says they can't or don't see God at work in the world are either looking in the wrong place or not looking hard enough. Here's a great story that shows how active He really is; it was posted over at The Questioning Christian.

Public Mourning
by Susan Fawcett

For good or ill, the parish I serve is becoming skilled in a particular kind of hospitality: high-profile funerals. A few years ago, before I began working here, the parish opened its doors to hold a funeral for a young woman whose kidnap and brutal murder got top billing on every major news network. With television-news trucks, reporters, and cameras swarming the perimeter, a church that seats 350 on a good day welcomed swarms of people who came to mourn an untimely (and much publicized) death. I doubt the parish realized how that funeral was preparing them for another.
