Richmond Hill – One Year Later

November 5, 2013

Candle (John 1:5)

November 10th marks the one year anniversary of the Richmond Hill explosion.  As I reflect on the past year and all that has transpired since that night – I am overwhelmed with emotions.  Like many of my Richmond Hill friends, I have felt the heavy burden of sadness, anger and frustration.  I have even felt guilt as as our neighbors houses were torn down and ours was left standing.

But throughout this past 12 months, I’ve also experienced tremendous hope, unmatched generosity and a sense of community like none other.  The outpouring of support from family, friends and colleagues is testament to the goodness that exists.  I am grateful to all those who prayed, who donated, who offered words of encouragement.

Our journey is far from over, the wounds of some may never fully heal.  There are still many challenges that lie ahead but Richmond Hill is stronger and our light will continue to shine!
