I saw the news headlines of the Cuba aircrash and the Texas shooting online and felt great sadness for all the families of those who had died or were injured - and then I read the stories and suddenly it got personal. I met and married The Wonderful Man when we were both members of the Church of the Nazarene and we made very many friends there. I read that in the Cuba aircrash there were ten Nazarene pastors and their wives on board and suddenly the news felt personal. The Nazarenes in the UK are a small Christian denomination and tonight I know there will be a wave of sadness going through the church community.
Has there ever been a time, for good or ill, when a news story has affected you personally?
