WESTON - Pastors Chris and Glenda Boggs of Sonlight Church and Community Center in Weston are holding a special service on Sunday featuring a couple who lost their son in 2000.
The grieving process is one which is continually ongoing.
Pastor Chris Boggs noted "On Dec. 19, 2000, I stopped by Summersett's Paint Store to meet the father of one of the boys my son played basketball with. While we were getting acquainted, Dave Summersett's phone rang and he received that call that no parent should ever have to take. The world stood still that day as the reality of their son's death closed in around them."
The pastor also notes how this summer two young men from the Otsego community lost their lives in separate accidents.
"Family and friends were left reeling with questions. What do we say? What can we do? How do we comfort those who mourn?" Boggs questioned.
To help address some of those concerns, Dave & Becky Summersett will join with the congregation Sunday as "we relive the most terrible day of their lives."
Church officials welcome the public to join with the Summersetts and the congregation for what they call "an emotional yet thoughtful look at things that were said and done by well-meaning friends and family."
The service will look at ways to comfort those who mourn so that people might "more effectively reflect the love of Christ in the midst of crisis."
The service will be at 10 a.m. at the church located at Ohio 235 and Sand Ridge Road.
Boggs says, "If you know someone dealing with loss and grief, why not invite them to church this Sunday?"
