Hope, Even in Community Sorrow

Praying"At the end of the day, God loves Michael Brown. God loves Darren Wilson."

In case you missed those powerful words, attributed to Christopher Williams, you can read them here in their full context: In Ferguson, residents find much for which to be grateful amid troubling times.

If we find either statement hard to accept—that God loves Michael Brown or that God loves Darren Wilson—it might help to remember something equally shocking, from a divine standpoint: God loves us.

What would you do, or do differently, knowing God loved you and had your back? What would you place in His hands? What wouldn't you place in His hands?
