We'll be setting aside some time during Adult Christian Education tomorrow to discuss the "why" question. Why does and how can God permit horrific crimes and tragedies to take place? If you know people struggling with this kind of question, be sure to invite them.

If there is time we'll continue with our teaching series dealing with various models engaging for culture.

If you are looking for a financial way to help the families of those who have been injured or killed the Broom County Council of Churches has established a fund. Here's the information:
