I am grateful to my colleague in Nova Scotia, Rev. Rick Pryce of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada for this simple prayer service following the horrendous and senseless tragedy in Portapique.
In the wake of the horrendous mass killing which we saw in Portapique and the surrounding area in Nova Scotia yesterday, the following prayers are offered.
Light a candle. Take some time. Be honest about your feelings, whatever they are.
And let us work for peace in our hearts, peace in our homes, peace in our land, and peace in our world.
