Five Years since Sandy Hook, Praying for Victim of Gun Violence





Today marks the fifth year since the Sandy Hook massacre. Tonight's vigil will provide an opportunity to pay tribute to the victims of mass shootings, other homicide victims, and those who have lost their lives to suicide and accidental shootings. We will gather to remember individuals, hear inspirational thoughts and music, and reflect on the epidemic of gun violence in our nation.
 



God of the broken-hearted,
God of the broken heart,
receive our sighs
too deep for words.
In your time,
by your grace,
heal us.
In this meantime,
hold us
as we weep.
Hold us and rock us
with the rhythm
of your own
grief-struck
quaking
body.
Amen

J. Harader
