If you haven’t heard, there was a tragic shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville during the morning service.

Summary: A man, wielding a shotgun, entered the TVUUC building during the morning service and fired several times, injuring eight or nine people. The gunman was brought down by congregation members. All of the victims were taken to the hospital; two later died. A suspect has been taken into custody and will appear before a judge on August 5.

Two friends of mine and their families were at the Church when the shooting took place. They are both safe, thankfully.

Please offer prayers, candles, and hope for the families and community as they deal with this tragedy.
