More violence.  More hatred.  More terror.  More fear.  More sorrow.  More grief.  More sadness.  

How long O Lord?

Be with the grieving, the mourning, and those who are injured.  Be with the shooter whose heart was filled with such hate.  Miraculously author newness out of these shadows.

As people of faith in Jesus Christ let us condemn the violent acts in New Zealand, white supremacy across the globe, and Islamophobia.  Let us long for the day when God will make all things right and there will be no more hatred, violence, and death.  Let us stand with people of all faiths across the world and celebrate our common spiritual heritages and convictions as we work together for a more peaceful, just, loving, kind, and spiritually conscious planet.  

Christ have mercy.
