S. Lewis wrote years ago that "pain is God's megaphone to a deaf
world."In that way, some tragedies
may serve as wake-up calls for spiritually sleeping people.In a way, "tragedy" is a big reason
why the cross and crucifixion of Christ still grip our imagination.There is something so profound about Calvary that even people whose religion has nothing to do
with Christianity, even people who reject Christ both intellectually and
verbally, nevertheless are gripped by the story.Thank God, perhaps, that He allows tragedy to
so grab people.
