Utterly horrific.


Prayer offered for both; hope the rector recovers.


I wonder what happened; what the circumstances are?

Disgruntled (and possibly mentally unbalanced) homeless man who had been turned away from the parish food pantry because of his increasing beligerence and threatening behavior. According to the news story I read, the bishop thinks the rector and the church secretary weren't targeted specifically. They just happened to be there when the man returned with a gun. Sad.

O God, the Father of all, whose Son commanded us to love
our enemies: Lead them and us from prejudice to truth:
deliver them and us from hatred, cruelty, and revenge; and in
your good time enable us all to stand reconciled before you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.




I am reading conflicting reports that the rector has died, while another says she's on life support. Either way, very sad..this is one of those things that tests your faith.Cry

May the Rector rest in peace. And what a touching thing to memoralize the shooter.



I can't imagine the shock and trauma that church is going through. It makes all the things we complain about in own parishes seem so insignificant.

Very Christ-like decision.
