  • Violence must be stopped

    Friday’s shooting in a Connecticut elementary school has this nation reeling with emotion. I am no exception.

    I am devastated and deeply saddened for the victims and their families. I am sad for the shooter and his family, because somehow this man’s problems went unnoticed, and his family is also paying the price.

    I am frustrated that these situations are becoming more and more commonplace – and more and more deadly.

    And I’m angry. On so many levels.

  • Singing songs of peace at Christmas

    One of my favorite parts of Christmas is attending the Christmas Eve service at my church.

    With the lights dimmed, candles soften the sanctuary, soften faces, quiet the hearts of the people who have come.

    Some come harried and hassled. Others come burdened and broken. All come seeking something, seeking peace.

    At my church, it’s our tradition on Christmas Eve to sing of peace and silence. As we hold candles we sing, “Peace, peace, peace on earth and good will to all.”
