So you'll have to understand the bizarre and confusing mix of emotions I've experienced this week as I heard about Fred Phelps' death. I won't lie to you; I have thought and felt things that I have had no category for. I've thought about how to express any of it or to share for someone else's benefit. Anything I typed, I just deleted. I had nothing.
But today I read Ed Stetzer's post on Christianity Today's website. It's titled:

Ed always has a great word. This is no exception.
How will we respond to hate? The only way to overcome it is through love.
The death of hate will only come at the hands of love. The love of God.
1 John 4:7-12
