A Grief Removed Yet Present

My post earlier today was stark and brief because I could come up with no words or phrases to adequately describe the lump in my throat or the heart that aches for a community that is 4 years and many miles away even as it is an ever present part of who I am.

The words still aren't coming, so I am grateful to my friend and fellow Taylor alum Heather for her explanation of this feeling. It's in moments like this that our faith would seem almost absurd if not for the reality that our faith is all we have.

We experienced loss on Wheaton's campus a few times and it was heart wrenching...I will be sure to pray for the Taylor community this week.
