Orphan’s cries make for wrenching memorial service for Brooklyn rabbi and wife murdered in Mumbai

This headline caught my attention and the story broke my heart.

The 2 year old boy literally cried out during the memorial “Abba!”

Reading this was a powerful picture for me of what Paul says about the believer in Romans 8. The cry of everyone in Christ is a similar cry, a cry for our “father”, a cry for reunion, and more specifically, redemption.

Read the story below and pray for the families who have been deeply impacted by this great tragedy. May we weep with those who weep and cry out for the freedom of creation and our full redemption (Rom 8:18-24).
