We grieve together with all affected by the tragedies in Dallas, in Minnesota and in Louisiana.
"In these days of sadness and soul-ache, may these words provide solace and renew our resolve for justice and caring for each other:
'I share with you the agony of your grief,
the anguish of your heart
finds echo in my own.
I know I cannot enter all you feel
nor bear with you the burden of your pain;
'I can but offer what my love does give:
the strength of caring,
the warmth of one who seeks to understand
the silent storm-swept barrenness
of so great a loss.
