I'm glad I didn't know anything about the Texas church shooting until after our worship service was over. Because I don't know how I would have reacted.
Even now, I don't know what to think. I've been a blur of emotions, thoughts, and sensations. It's very difficult to put words on paper, so I decided to draw something instead. I drew a kind of flow chart of the thoughts in my head since learning of the massacre in Sutherland Springs. I present it to you simply for what it is -- a picture of my brain.
That's where I am at this moment, midway through this hellish week. Looking forward to being in worship with you on Sunday so that we can take comfort and solace in our God and our own faith community.
