OXFORD — Author and musician Robert Rogers, who lost his wife and four children in a flash flood in 2003, will be guest speaker at 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 30, at the Oxford Advent Christian Church on Route 26. He will also perform in concert at 6:30 p.m. and a freewill offering will be taken.

The Ft. Wayne, Ind., resident travels worldwide to share his experience in learning to trust God in the midst of devastating loss. His book, “Into the Deep,” co-authored with Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist
Stan Finger, chronicles the account of the loss of his wife and four young children in a flash flood in Kansas in 2003.

“I don’t know whether [God]
intentionally took my family, or whether He allowed them to die,”
he wrote. “I
won’t know this side of heaven. I can’t control what happened.
But I can control how I respond to what happened. It wasn’t about
what happened to me; it was about what happened within me.”

Rogers, an electrical
engineer and accomplished musician, resigned from his technical
career in 2004 to form Mighty in the Land ministry. He shares his
testimony of “no regrets” around the world.

Rogers will perform in concert at the Bethel Alliance Church on Route 26 at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29.
