13 Jul Candlelight Vigil held for Highland Park victims
As we continue to process our many feelings about the Highland Park shooting, we want to share some comforting images from the Candlelight Vigil we offered on Thursday, July 7.
Should you wish to partake in part (or all) of the service, yourself, visit our YouTube Channel.
Though loss, grief, and doubts may assail us, we find strength: in God’s presence, and in one another’s presence. We pray this service offers you the solace and sanctuary you seek. As Scripture, silence, song and candle-lighting gently interweave, we invite you to be present in silence knowing that God hears all our prayers, even those too deep for words. We lift up all those who continue to render aid and to embody compassionate community in the wake of this attack. We pray, as well, for victims of violence everywhere, for the those who are driven to such acts against our shared humanity, and for whatever silent petitions you may offer. Thank you for intentionality. And for your care in Christ.
