Thank you to Mrs. McMurray for all of her contributions to student like me over many decades in education. She was a transformative teacher who made an incredible impact on my life. May God bless the family and may she rest well with the angels.

May the God of comfort, comfort you in this time of sorrow and may you draw close to him in prayer. 2Corinthians 1 : 3,4

When someone dear to us dies a feeling of helplessness engulfs us. The Bible teaches that there is going to be a resurrection which means that those who are dead will be brought back to life. (John 5:28,29) What do you think, do you think that the dead can really live again? At Acts 24:15 we are assured that “there is going to be a resurrection.” So we can believe what the Bible says because God is the creator of life and he has resurrected humans in the past and he is eager to do it again. Isn’t that reassuring? So may the God of all comfort, comfort you in your time of sorrow. (Revelation 21:4) And may you draw close to him in prayer. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)
