Many of you probably already heard that one of the saints of our congregation passed away on Wednesday.Â Â You can find his obituary here.Â The funeral will be this coming Wednesday.Â Please keep Maribel and the family in your prayers.
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written,
â€˜For your sake we are being killed all day long;
we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered.â€™
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:35-39 (NRSV)
