In the Name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Ghost.
Death always fills us with questions, especially a death that is unexpected. We ask questions that cannot be answered: “Did I miss something?” “Could I have done something to help?” We have a tendency in tragedy to turn our focus inward. The problem with the questions, with looking inside is that there is no certainty. In death, in tragedy, and in all of life’s uncertainties we need to cling to that which is sure and certain, that which is unchanging. That’s why we sang what we just sang: “On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.” Dear family and friends of Cliff, turn your eyes to Christ. Look to Jesus. He may not be able to answer your questions, but that’s okay. Instead, He will point you to Himself and to His love for Cliff, and His love for you.
