A Hero Is Gone

A hero is gone.

I am priviledged to live in an area protected by simply the finest; the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. I am glad to raise my family in an area served by these fine officers.

Last week, our community lost one of these officers, doing what they are called to do; putting their lives on the line for others. This is truly a calling, not a job. We weep with a family who has lost a husband, son, father and friend.

Today, we hear reports that yet another officer was shot. Can we, the church recognize it is our job to bring hope to a community that so desperately needs it? We must invest in our youth so we can make it safer for these heroes.

Will you work for a community of hope?
