Prayers for our Sikh sisters and brothers
I ask you to join me in prayer for the victims of the tragic shootings that took place August 5 at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. We pray God’s strength and His peace for the departed, the wounded and all of the family members and friends traumatized by this horrific violence. We also take this moment to express solidarity with our Sikh brothers and sisters as people of God and to remember that our own faith calls us to tolerance and non-violence in a world filled with so many different faith traditions.
Most Reverend Gerald R. Barnes
