We are mourning the loss of the children and adults who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday, December 14. Our capacity to take in and process such a tragedy is very limited. Most of our media offer us a lot of information within a very narrow time frame, and we know that after only a few days our attention will be drawn to other events, thoughts, and conversations.
We will attempt to remember those who have died and all who love them, and to allow that memory to shape our prayers as well as our thinking.
Each Sunday, we will speak one of the names in worship, and this practice will take until sometime in June. We will take some time to process this violent loss and to consider possible consequences.
On Sunday, December 16 we remembered Victoria Soto, age 27.
