Thanks to Sher Wolf, Christian Science Assistant Committee on Publication for South Bend, Indiana for today’s timely blog as we pray for the Purdue community.
I received a text a few moments ago from my granddaughter who attends Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana: “There was a shooting on campus two buildings from me. I’m on lockdown, but I’m fine.”
My response back to her was: “You are never in the line of fire. There is a Shepherd over us all that protects us from those who have neglected to guard their own thought from hateful, fearful, lonely suggestions and are indulging in them. Power lies in Life where you and each one at Purdue dwells including the perpetrator.”
Her response: “Thank you I needed that.”
My text: “God’s thoughts are always with you leading you. Just get quiet and listen.”
