Jesu dona eis requiem . . .

This morning I awoke to the news of the tragedy of 12 people killed and more injured by a lone gunman at a movie theater in Aurora Colorado.  Click Here for News Story

How do we make sense of such horrific senseless horrors?  Why did this happen?  How do we react?  What can we do?  Where is God?

These are all questions I found myself struggling with this morning, and as I was . . . drifting in from the sanctuary was “Pie Jesu” being practiced by our guest soloist for Sunday, Rebekah Wickens.  Beautifully and prayerfully sung–Pie Jesu Domine, dona eis requiem–King Lord Jesus, grant them rest.

Feeling frustrated, angry, and helpless the only thing I can do at this time is offer my grief and prayers for the families to God.
