What.

If you haven't already heard, in an unfathomable twist of events, there has been a case of mistaken identity with two of the girls from last month's van crash that killed 4 Taylor students and 1 employee. You can read the article and watch the video from the Indianapolis NBC Eyewitness News here.

My heart is breaking all over again for the families of these girls and for the Taylor community. My head is spinning with all the implications.

And yet God is good, and faith is real even when nothing makes sense. I spent some time this afternoon on the blog the VanRyn family has been keeping for the girl they thought was their daughter, Laura, and I am astounded by the depth of their faith and the extent of their graciousness even in the face of this gut-wrenching news. At a time of speechlessness, they have spoken to a watching world words heavy with grief, but rimmed with hope. Incredible.

Suz,

INteresting. Even before I found your post, I posted my own statement on the very same story. See it at: http://rationalthoughtsonreligion.blogspot.com/2006/06/blog-post.html

I'd like to hear your response.
