My wife Sue and I went to hear Lorraine Whoberry speak on Sun. May 6, 2012 at the First Congregational Church of Stanton, MI. Lorraine has an amazing and powerful testimony that deeply touched our hearts, and everyone in the congregation. Lorraine is humble, honest, truthful, and transparent. She is totally surrendered to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and she is filled with the Holy Spirit. Lorraine depends on the Holy Spirit to give her strength when she is sharing her story. It is not an easy story to tell. It brings back pain and deep emotion every time. Lorraine obediently and graciously tells her story, because she wants to see people set free from unforgiveness. When you hear Lorraine’s story, you will learn that every person who should have been there to help her in her time of greatest need, actually added to the crisis and intensified the trauma in the hours, days, and weeks after Stacie’s murder. In my over 35 years of pastoral experience, I have met very few believers with such a compelling story about personal tragedy and triumph through Jesus Christ. Our need to forgive the people who have wronged us is not a message we want to hear or the path we want to take. It is the most difficult thing we will ever be asked to do. But Lorraine will testify that it is the only way to experience true freedom and to live in peace with God, with ourselves, and with others. Forgiveness is a process, and a journey that takes time, effort, and God’s miraculous work in our heart. Please find a way to hear Lorraine speak in person. Then join me in spreading the word and encouraging churches, prisons, law enforcement agencies, the legal/justice system, EMT’s and emergency room doctors and staff to invite Lorraine to share her story with their people. You can make a difference in our world by helping to spread the word about Lorraine’s story and her ministry through the S.T.A.C.I.E. Foundation.
