Haran died in the presence of his father Terah.

Genesis 11:28

Few things can be more upsetting than to witness the passing of one’s own child, at whatever age. It just seems such an unnatural sequence of events! Just imagine what it must have been like for Mary, in the harrowing circumstances of her Son’s death. As she stood at the foot of the cross looking up into the face of her lovely Son, she saw all those things she had treasured in her heart unfold before her tear-stained eyes.
We can share her grief in some small measure as we gaze at Calvary this morning.
