Madonna, the 57-year old queen of pop, made a tearful reference to the recent Paris attacks at her concert the other night in Stockholm, Sweden. She said, "There are people who have no respect for human life and there are people that do atrocious, degrading, and unforgivable things to other human beings. But we will never, ever, ever change this world we live in if we do not change ourselves."

I have found that God does this amazing thing when we are present during the death of a loved one. When the time comes for that person to move on, and when the veil between heaven and earth becomes increasingly thin, God creates what can only be called "holy moments" for those who make themselves truly "present."

It's too easy to chalk up last week's tragedy in a New York church to the actions of a bunch of crazies. It's too easy to simply shake one's head in disgust, flip the page and move past the story without thinking how such a horrific thing might relate to us.

Not long ago, I was having lunch with a few pastor friends of mine when one remarked at how often he sees siblings from the same family, all raised the exact same way in regards to church, approach church involvement very differently as adults.
