please pray.

It's been a rough week for my brother-in-law Joseph and the singing group that he is in at UNC called Psalm 100.

I'm not going to explain, I'm not going to discuss it, and I'm not asking for opinions or discussion.

Here are some links that can show you what I'm talking about:

http://www.dailytarheel.com/index.php/article/2011/08/4e5c6c791822c - first article about it.

http://www.jdgreear.com/my_weblog/2011/08/psalm-100s-difficult-decision-of-asking-a-gay-ministry-leader-to-step-down.html - further explanation.

All I'm asking for is prayer. Prayer for everyone involved. These are kids...some of them teenagers. Who are facing a whole lot right now. They are walking around a campus with people filled with hate for them, they are having to answer to numerous calls from various press sources, they are having comments and questions thrown at them everywhere they turn. All on top of the school and life responsibilities that they already have. It is hard. Very hard.

So just pray for their spirits. Pray that they will be able to handle everything with God's strength. Pray for the campus. Pray most of all that God will be glorified. It doesn't matter what your views or opinions on it are - you can pray for them.

Thank you so much.

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

  1. Wow, Ashley.... just wow. The Lord sees, the Lord knows, the Lord is in control. Remember.. the world will not like us because it didn't like Him... but remember this: John 16:33
    These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

    I will pray for them!
