Be in prayer for Steven Curtis Chapman family ...

The Steven Curtis Chapman family has suffered a great tragedy: Five-year-old Maria Sue was struck and killed by sport utility vehicle driven by her teenage brother.

I've interviewed Steven Curtis and ask that you join in compassionate prayer for this family that has extended so much compassion to others.

A quote from John Styll, president of the Gospel Music Association, expresses things well:

“I don’t know of anybody who loves his children more than he does and is so committed to the adoption concept, and to lose one, no matter what the circumstances, is heartbreaking beyond all comprehension,” said John Styll, president of the Nashville-based Gospel Music Association.

“He talks about his kids all the time. That’s his life. His kids are more important to him than music, that’s for sure.”
May the God of grace and peace comfort this family ...
