During this tragic time in surfing community, with the loss of World
Champion Andy Irons, our souls cry out that something is wrong. Not only is
something wrong in the world around us but it feels as though something is wrong
inside each of us. This is what many have called the God shaped hole in each of
us. Saint Augustine said that our souls will always be restless until they find
their rest in God.
I would ask you to commit to pray for the Irons family during this extremely painful time. Pray that God's comfort would be very real in their lives. Also, pray that God would recycle the pain in the surfing community and draw people to Himself. Pray, too, that God would give the members of Christian Surfers great wisdom as they live as the Light of the world and bring grace and truth to the surfing communities of our world.
