Thank you

Saturday's prayer service was well attended by both those seeking peace and the media. Our decision to let the media participate was to ensure the church's message of peace and grace got out during this troubling time.

Of course, it was a circus.

This morning's service was well attended as well sans media. I am very thankful that those media representatives that were present outside the church were respectful of our wishes. The service was quiet and normal; it provided great comfort to those that attended.

Thanks to the many of you around the world who have left voicemails, emails, facebook posts, and posts on this blog. Your words and prayers are a great comfort.

May God bless you all.
