What happened in Orlando was a national tragedy. When events like this happen people look to pastors for words and answers. The reality is that sometimes we are too quick with words in the wake of these tragedies. Others have been ready with words of outrage, grief, confusion, despair, or hope…but to be honest with you, I actually don’t have any words. I can think of nothing to say in the wake of this hatred and horror. So I sit in silence – the silence of grief, the silence of incomprehension, the silence of sorrow, the silence of mourning, and above all, the silence of prayer.
