We remember Nancy Lanza and all who love her. She was the mother of the young man who killed twenty children and six women on Friday, December 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
We are mourning the loss of all the children and adults who were killed that day. 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 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 have spoken one of the names in worship, allowing our hearts to process this violent loss and to consider what we might do in response.
