It's heartbreaking and heartrending and I can't even get into it all here.
Moving on, in a not-completely-unrelated story:
And to help his congregation remember, the Rev. Will Bowen gave each one a purple bracelet stamped with the word spirit.
The challenge was to go 21 days straight without mumbling a complaining word and no gossiping and criticizing either. If a person slipped, the bracelet was to be switched to the other wrist, and the 21-day time period started over.
But what began in July as a simple idea has become a national movement, a “complaint-free movement.” And Christ Church Unity in Kansas City is becoming known throughout the country as the complaint-free church."
I'm sure that I will be switching my bracelet back and forth many times a day. But at least I'll be trying.
