Dear United Methodist friends,
In these early days of Lent, we grieve with the people of Parkland, Florida.
We give thanks for courageous, faithful, thoughtful leadership of pastors and of laity. As we seek to find and offer comfort, God is with us.
I hope you will read and ponder prayerfully this excellent message from David Gira, pastor of Orange United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill.
Let us remember, pray and join the young people in Parkland in being advocates for action to make our country a safer place for all children.
With gratitude for your partnership in ministry,
