Last night, before I went to bed, I heard very tragic news concerning one of my favorite Christian songwriters, Steven Curtis Chapman. His youngest daughter, Maria, was accidentally struck and killed by a vehicle driven by one of her older teenage brothers. When I told my wife, she recounted how her grandfather’s sister had accidentally hit and killed one of their brothers, and how it stayed with her until the day she died. Please pray for the Chapman family with their loss (which I cannot even imagine), and for the young man, that God’s mercy and grace will comfort and encourage him especially. (Update: the Chapman family has set up this site in honor of Maria.)
