From the editors at Christianity Today:
“Steven Curtis Chapman’s music has touched millions over the last 20 years, and many of us feel like we’ve come to know him and his family through his songs and through his consistent witness for Christ. Most can only imagine what the Chapman family is going through right now in the aftermath of such tragedy. The ‘who,’ ‘what,’ and ‘how’ of all this is undoubtedly weighing heavily on their hearts, leading them to wonder ‘why’ such a thing could happen.
“As brothers and sisters in Christ, I would encourage you to keep the Chapman family in your prayers as they wrestle with the grief and the guilt stemming from little Maria Sue’s accident. Pray especially that they would experience God’s peace and comfort at this extremely difficult time.
