Some lives speak volumes
Some are silent as the grave
Dearly beloved — that’s what the obituaries say — never hinting at the conflict, shame or sin that lie behind the veil. In October 2012, Paul, the author’s 18-year-old son was killed by a hit-and-run driver while walking home from an evening performing with his punk rock band. Amid the grief of loss, she is burdened over his life that seemed to be headed in the wrong direction and their strained relationship. Dogged by grief, guilt, blame and shame, she relives every memory searching for that conclusive evidence that he did after all, belong to Christ. Clinging to the Biblical doctrines of grace, the truth she knows wrestles with the longing of her heart. Can she trust God, with even this?
