Hearts with Boston, Rev. Kent Matthies

Our hearts are broken again with the outbreak of senseless violence in our nation. Every day, violence plagues our nation in the form of guns, knives and other attacks. This time the bombings in Boston crush our hearts with sorrow and grief.

We send our love to the people of Boston who were affected by this cowardly attack on innocent people. Throughout the days to come I encourage all of us to meditate, pray, or engage in any spiritual practices, which can create peace in our hearts and our world.

During our Sunday morning service instead of my previously scheduled sermon I will reflect briefly on the situation and then as a community we will spend time in a Quaker style meeting for silence and reflection.
