IT WAS A HATEFUL PALM SUNDAY.
This is normally my blog post for the Bible Question of the Week.
I’m thinking the question this week should be “Why?”
While I was at my first-ever Passover meal yesterday, a Seder hosted for my Bible study group in the home of a Jewish member of our group, someone stormed into the nearby Jewish Community Center and shot to death several people, including a grandfather and his 14-year-old grandson…both of whom attended my church.
Dr. William Lewis Corporon and Reat Griffin Underwood.
The first we knew of the shooting was while we were clearing off the Passover table.
Our Jewish host’s daughter frantically called from the Jewish Community Center, saying she was in lock-down.
The shooting suspect, a man in his 70’s, shouted “Heil Hitler” as he was arrested. I saw the video. I heard the words. I felt my stomach drop.
I should think about this before writing anymore.
I heard of the shooting on Internet news, but no details. How awful! May God bring comfort to all affected with this outburst of terror.
This is so sad. My heart goes out to all the families of everyone there that was affected.
My hearts and prayers go out to the family and friends of those who died. So sad.
So tragic…my heart is grieved and my prayers for these families and your church!
Such a senseless tragedy! :'( I’m lifting those families and your church family up in prayer.
