I would like to ask you to pray for our friend and teacher, RC Sproul, who is in the hospital after suffering a mild stroke this past weekend. Here’s what was shared on the Ligonier Ministries web site:
“Last Saturday, Dr. Sproul checked himself into the hospital. The doctors suspect he had a mild stroke. He remains in the hospital for further testing and observation. The Sproul family requests your prayers.
Thank you for your continued prayers for Dr. Sproul. The doctors did confirm a stroke occurred but we are thankful to God that there is no paralysis. In fact, he is very alert, feeling well, and resting comfortably. And the hospital staff is enjoying his sense of humor.
After consulting with the neurosurgeon yesterday evening, Dr. Sproul decided to undergo a short procedure this morning to attempt to clear the partial arterial blockage in his brain. He is receiving expert care from the hospital staff. Your continued prayers to God on his behalf are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
After further consult with the doctors, Dr. Sproul preferred to pursue a non-invasive path that would stabilize his newly diagnosed diabetic condition. The risk/reward ratio for the surgical procedure was not acceptable. He is resting but did express his gratitude for all who are praying for wisdom and healing.”
Watch “The Lightlings” in Tribute to RC
In the meanwhile, here’s a great insightful children’s story narrated by RC that he wrote called, “The Lightlings”. In The Lightlings, RC weaves an allegorical tale that captures the essence of the biblical story of redemption in a manner that will fascinate and delight children. A race of tiny beings known as lightlings are a picture of humanity as they pass through all the stages of the biblical drama – creation, fall, and redemption. In the end, children will understand why some people fear light more than darkness, but why they need never fear darkness again.
Enjoy and live in the Light! – Arthur
