There was the sound of a mighty rushing wind. It was whirling all around us. Out on the windy streets of Winnipeg, Cliff and Wilma Derksen were surrounded by a media frenzy. They looked so small in the middle of that circle, but you could see that they were at peace. Their hearts were calm in the centre of the storm. Cliff and Wilma had just walked out of the court room where the judge had rendered a verdict of “not guilty” for the man who had been charged with their daughter’s death 33 three years earlier. There were so many unanswered questions. So many reasons for them to be frustrated and angry. But they were not. They were at peace. Their joy did not depend on the ability of a human court to provide answers or to find someone guilty. Peace was found in Jesus Christ, the One who had given them the joy of the Lord!
