We’ve all been saddened and shocked by the recent mass shooting at a nightclub in Orlando. As people of faith, called to bear peace and light, we wonder how something so tragic and hateful can occur.
In the event that some of our readers would desire to take a break from our scheduled curriculum to discuss, process, and pray about this event, we offer the following resources for your small group.
As you lead your small group Sunday, know that you are prayed for by our entire team. What you do matters—now more than ever.
In love and light,
Your friends at FaithElement
