Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and families of the victims who were killed in the recent shootings. An Omaha shopping mall, a Christian training center in Arvada, CO., and a Colorado Springs church all targeted by the trauma of evil. The heartache of both the relations of the victims as well as the families of the gunmen is hard to even begin to imagine. May we remember them in our prayers this Christmas season, and find hope in the promise the Messiah brings: peace on earth.
