American Psalms joins the Christian community in mourning the loss of Pastor Rick and Kay Warren’s son, Matthew. Their son died yesterday at the age of 27 after a life-long battle with mental illness and depression. It is a devastating loss for any family, and a reminder that none of us are immune to the pain of a fallen world. Our hope is in the grace of Jesus alone. Please pray for the Warren family, their friends and church community. We grieve with you, and pray the Holy Spirit will encourage, strengthen and comfort you.
