Pastor Rick Warren preaches for the first time after son's suicide

Here is the article.
His 27-year-old-son, a longtime sufferer of mental illness, shot himself to death.

Pastor Warren is one of the most influential Christians in the u.S., author of The Purpose-Driven Life and leader of the megachurch Saddleback.

What a harsh challenge, for one with such a large public role in Christendom. I hope he and his family weather it well.

It is often amazing what people of faith, and without faith, will endure.

I've read the back page, Scholar, it says........We Win!!! If you live a life of complete devotion to God, nothing can hold you back.

Explanation: In most stories, the good guys always win, the hero gets the girl and they all live happily ever after. The Bible is not much different in that regard. I've also a friend whose son died of a drug overdose, he is still a pastor and spends much time travelling and encouraging other Christians in their faith.
