A Letter from Mr. Gregg About Nashville School Shootings

Tragic situations make us confront hard realities—evil in the world, the brevity of life, and our limited ability to protect our children. We grieve for parents walking through unfathomable loss, not wanting to imagine ourselves in their place but fearing one day we may be in their shoes. What does it look like for us to entrust our children to the Lord while rightly acknowledging how evil and suffering affect us? There are no easy answers, but prayer is good place to start.

Demolition has begun!
