Last Sunday night a fire broke out at the home of one of our pastors, John Sherman. The fire caused over a million dollars in damage to the 130-year-old home. Linds and I went over to join the cleanup effort a couple days ago. Sifting through the charred remains of the house was surreal. Micah, their son who is a part of my youth ministry, told me it felt like he was watching a movie about someone else.
I’m so impressed with the way that the Sherman family has responded to the fire. They’ve set such an amazing example of what it means to have your hope and perspective rooted in Christ.
Several TV stations and newspapers have been tracking the story. Here’s an article that the OC Register wrote that does a great job of sharing the Sherman family’s response to the fire: “After devastating fire, pastor finds hope and help”.
