From Bishop Barry: On the synagogue shooting

On Monday, Oct. 29, several of our clergy, including Bishop Barry Beisner and Interim Dean of Trinity Cathedral, Jim Richardson, joined with Jewish, Muslim, Christian leaders to mourn those killed by the shooting in Pittsburgh. (Photos by Jim Richardson)

"We give our heartfelt prayers for the communities of Tree of Life Synagogue and Louisville, Kentucky, in this time of profound loss and grief; for all victims of the terrible ongoing, hateful gun violence that afflicts our country; and for the healing of our deep divisions," Bishop Barry Beisner said.

The Presiding Bishop has released a statement on the Tree of Life shooting, which is available here.

Bishop McConnell of the Diocese of Pittsburgh has also released a statement, which is available here.

O God, you have bound us together in a common life.  
 Help us, in the midst of our struggles for justice and truth,
to confront one another without hatred or bitterness,
and to work together with mutual forbearance and respect;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
- BCP pg. 824
