This is one of my favourite stories. It is about the heart of Alpha. It is about the power of Christ and his Spirit to transform lives. It is about the way God can make everything right.
The words to the old hymn by Fanny Crosby just popped into my head;
"For I know whate'er befall me Jesus doeth all things well." (from All the Way My Saviour Leads Me)And again, from the prophet Isaiah
"...[to] provide for those who grieve... ...to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."Indeed he does.
