Story Highlights

The National Council of Churches is compiling a list of actions and prayer responses taking place across the country in response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook.

I have been inspired by the great outpouring of support and compassion I have seen in the faith community’s response to the devastating shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. From prayer vigils to pastoral care resources, and from moving sermons to the many, many prayers for the families and community in Newtown – the outpouring of God’s love to this community through God’s people has been hope fulfilled.
