Please pray

for children everywhere- there was another school shooting this morning. In Amish country in Pennsylvania, a deranged lunatic has killed three students & himself & wounded seven others. What is this world coming to?!

Psalm 46 (abbreviated)

God is our hope and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will we not fear, though the earth be moved
and though the hills be carried into the midst of the sea.
Though the waters thereof rage and swell,
and though the mountains shake at the tempest of the same..
Be still then, and know that I am God.. ~

"Give courage and faith to those who are bereaved, that they may have strength to meet the days ahead in the comfort of a reasonable and holy hope, in the joyful expectation of eternal life with those they love. Help us, we pray, in the midst of things we cannot understand, to believe and trust in the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins and the resurrection to life everlasting. Amen" BCP p. 481

I will definitely have the families and the girls in my prayers tonight. Just so very painful.

My friend, daughter and myself were touring Lancaster County on Monday. At one point we were less than 6 miles from the school and had no idea what was going on. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful communities and beautiful farms and bridges.

This particular shooting seems to make even less sense than any other school shootings. Though just like the others, my heart breaks for the people who have been affected by this. So very sad.
