This summer we have been stunned by the tragic loss of like-minded colleagues from a different organization. The details are quite murky and the developing story is very dark but the basics that we know are that Ryan, Lora and their 4-year-old son Caleb were killed while on a family camping trip in the mountains. At a local memorial gathering (pictured above), many shared about how they were good friends and served as great examples to us of invitational, incarnational living in this context. The memorial took place in a small park where Ryan had been working to get the local authorities to install a playground for children (that’s why there is a playground picture below the family picture). Pray for their families as they deal with this devastating loss and for our team as we process the grief and painful emotions of this tragedy.
