I have a part two to my "Incredibly Shrinking God" post, but today I'm reflecting some more on a most disturbing event.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." A good lesson to bear in mind as a grapple with my feelings of broken trust in our human family. My suspicion is that this was done by a teenager. A professional wouldn't have given up so easily. I do hope that whoever did this will one day get caught trying to do it again. And I hope that rather than put them into the meat grinder of our justice system, they be made to face who they have hurt with their actions. I think facing the one injured is more likely to result in the heaping of burning coals upon the head. And that's where I'm at with all of this.
