Prayers for Fr. Scott

I ask you to remember our brother Scott Hankins in your prayers tonight and tomorrow. He must officiate at the funeral of an 18-year-old whose family is Christian but who, himself, was never baptized.

According to Scott, "His death was peaceful, but, shall we say, accidental in a self-medicating sort of way."

Hundreds of young people are expected to attend the service. Please pray that Scott can find the words to minister to these hurting people and let them know that God loves them, and loves the young man who died.

Pray also for the young man's family, and for the young man, himself.

UPDATE: Scot has posted an report on the service. You will find it here.
