Thank you Stephanie Martin from CHURCHLEADERS for this story if true love and true faith. Let us all keep the family and all those that lost loved ones in our prayers.
From Stephanie Martin:
In his return to the pulpit following the death of his 9-year-old daughter during the recent Nashville shooting, the Rev. Chad Scruggs expressed gratitude for congregants’ love and support. The Mother’s Day sermon, titled “Loss and Gain,” touched on suffering and grief as well as hope and endurance.
“First of all, we love you,” an emotional Scruggs told worshipers. “We loved you before March 27, and we love you more now because of how you have loved us…and we thank you.” As for how he and the family are doing, the pastor said that’s not a bad question, but they “just don’t know how to answer it.”
