Two weeks before Christmas and all through the land, violence, devastation, destruction continue, reminding us of the vulnerability of life.

Hundreds of lives are lost.  Bodies and souls are injured. Families are shattered by grief, anger, shock.

May we take a moment this day to pause to remember – to think of them, known and unknown.  In that ‘thinking of them,’ in those prayers, may their spirit know they are not alone.  May they be given courage to survive, to endure,  to carry on.  May they be assured that someone, somewhere, is thinking of them praying for them.

Like us.
