I know as a person who is “almost” a Minister I should not feel any different about who people are when a tragedy occurs, but the shooting in a Knoxville Unitarian Universalist church today has hit me squarely in the chest. Although I do not believe that I know anyone who belongs to this church, these are my people and they are hurting. So therefore I hurt.
I mourn with the people who are in that congregation, folks who I could have easily known had my life taken me to live in
I send to them my love and care, my hope that they can hold each other close and heal from this tear in the fabric of their lives.
Praying for Strength, Courage and Wisdom,
