A Sad Day in the Holy City

It's a sad day in the Holy City. Many of us woke up on this beautiful day to the unexpected terror that was all too close to home.

So many questions. Who did this? Who was hurt? Why did it happen? and What happens next?

While investigators work tirelessly to pull the pieces together, we've already seen overwhelming love and support for the victims and their families. There is a prayer vigil scheduled, and pages being shared where donations can be made in support of the church and the victims. Everyone wants to know how they can help.

It's amazing to see how many people want to help people they don't even know. At this point, we don't know the names or stories of most of the victims, yet people are already willing to step forward.

I will continue to pray for our law enforcement as the search for answers. For the victims and families in their grief and for our community to continue the outpouring of love and support.
