A lamentation of gun violence
Saturday’s assembly session opened with a meaningful litany and lamentation on gun violence. In particular, it was a time to remember and lament the fatal shooting that took place on the campus of UNC Charlotte almost exactly one month ago. We also gave attention to another act of gun violence that occurred in Virginia Beach just yesterday. Through this litany, the assembly was able to voice its sorrow and lift prayers for the many victims, families, and communities who have experienced these tragedies.
