A funeral: Syke Sutherland

A wedding, then a baptism, and yesterday, a funeral. All of life has been compressed into three days for our church community. Yesterday we said "farewell" to God's child, Syke Sutherland. May God comfort her husband Jim and their daughters, grandchildren, and all the other family members and friends who mourn her death. "Listen, I tell you a mystery: we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed" (I Cor 15:51). Syke now lives in glory- she has been changed.
