I had another blog post originally scheduled for today, but due to the tragic events that occurred in our country and around the world just this past month alone, I ask that you stand in solidarity with me for a moment of silence, to pray for the victims and their families. When I thought about writing a post reflecting one major occurrence, something else quickly popped up. Sometimes I simply can’t wrap my mind around or process many of the tragic events that occur, let alone keep up with them.
From the hurricanes, earthquakes, terrorist attacks in England, homicides, suicides, church shootings and most recently the mass shooting that occurred at a concert over the weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada, you can easily feel dismayed, overwhelmed and depressed.
But for this moment, regardless of your denomination, race, gender, economic status, nationality or political affiliation let us unite as a people and pause to pray. Don’t resort to praying only when something drastic happens, but meditate daily. We must be the intercessors because our world is in a crisis and is certainly quite different from what we used to call normal.
