Karena's funeral

Yesterday was a difficult day for many of us but it did have bright moments.

I thought our friends at Kerith Community Church served us so well as they hosted the funeral. They did a huge amount of work behind the scenes allowing us and others to mourn & remember Karena.

It was good that so many from RFC were able to be there, which was a real testament to our ever growing sense of community. I was so proud to be able to represent our church family.

I really enjoyed catching up with people and renewing old friendships. It's ironic that it sometimes takes a death to bring us back together.

But my real highlight was the solid foundation we have in the Gospel for processing Death. Jesus is a remarkable Saviour and He has won for us a sure and certain hope. Karena knew this and yesterday was a poignant reminder of this Gospel truth.

... and yes, Liz & I will miss her deeply.
