Please Pray

Please light a candle, pray or whatever you do to remember the dead.

Sunday, a man entered a Unitarian Universalist church in TN and started shooting during a children' performance of ANNIE. The shooter targeted the congregation for their beliefs and open acceptance of gay people which is part of the Unitarian Universalist tradition.

Unitarian Universalists across the nation will be joining together in silent prayer and meditation this evening in remembrance of the two worshippers who were killed and six who were injured.

"Please pause this evening at or around 8:30. Wherever you are, may it be for just that short time a place of prayer and hope for those who suffer so deeply."

--per information received from Rev. Nancy McDonald Ladd, Bull Run Unitarian Universalist Congregation
