Prayers for the Victims of the Shootings
at Seattle Pacific University 

 
In response to the shootings on the campus of Seattle Pacific University on June 5, our weekly TaizĂ© service on Friday, June 6 at 6:30pm will focus on prayer for the victims.The service will feature the meditative music of the ecumenical community of TaizĂ© in France, scripture readings, and candle-lighting. All are welcome.
  
Father Ryan has said: "With all the senseless violence that continues in our nation and our city, it seems important that people of faith come together to pray for the victims and for our law enforcement officials, and to pray for an end to the violence in our midst."

If I walk out into the field,
look! those slain by the sword;
If I enter the city,
look! victims of violence....
Why have you struck us a blow
that cannot be healed?
We wait for peace, to no avail;
for a time of healing, but terror comes instead.
Do not reject us, for your name's sake,
do not disgrace your glorious throne.
Remember your covenant with us,
and break it not. 

Jeremiah 14:18-21
