There is one supreme eternal reality; the truth; immanent in all things; creator of all things; imminent in creation. Without fear and without hatred.
The opening hymn of the holy Sri Guru Granth Sahib
This morning as my congregation at Zion UCC worshipped in peace, another place of worship was horrifically violated. An armed man entered the Sikh temple of Oak Creek, Wisconsin firing upon those gathered in worship. He killed six, injured three, and then was gunned down by police.
Words cannot express the horror and injustice of this tragic event. The congregation at Zion UCC joins all Sikhs in mourning. We will pray and we will grieve. It’s all we have to give.
