Dealing with the violence and tragedy

It seems each day brings another story of violence or tragedy

It can lead us in many directions: withdrawal, hate, revenge, fear, etc. What can we do? What does the Bible tells us about moving on?

"But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you." Matt. 5:44

"Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.'" Luke 23:34

It's not easy...

How can we be a healing presence?
