Please pray for the Laurie family. Christopher Laurie, son of Pastor Greg Laurie and Cathe Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, died Thursday morning in a car accident. A resident of Huntington Beach, Laurie, 33, served as the art director at Harvest Christian Fellowship for the past three years. In addition to his parents, Christopher is survived by his wife, Brittany, and daughter, Stella, as well as his brother Jonathan. Christopher and his wife are expecting another daughter in November.
It truly is a disturbing thing. There’s no way our minds can comprehend it. I believe it’s because we weren’t meant to understand it. When the Lord made us, he made us perfect, then sin crept in and tainted God’s perfect world. We were never meant to die which is why its so hard for us to understand when a loved one does die. We’ll never know why the Lord chose to take him now, but at least we know he’s in heaven. You know, there are some things that we aren’t meant to understand because we, being man, would have no way to make it reasonable, which is what we as humans need to do to understand things. There are some things in life we just have to accept and “beyond our comprehension.” That for some reason the Lord is shielding us from this understanding because we would not be able to bear the weight of it.
