In response to Wednesday morning’s shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, we the pastors of Aldersgate United Methodist Church offer our prayers and support to those who were victims of the violence and to the families of all involved in this senseless act of bloodshed. We are grateful to the police who acted swiftly to contain the violence and pray for their safety. We also pray for the shooter and his family. We recommit ourselves to the work of reconciliation and healing made possible to us through Jesus Christ; and, encourage you to join us in prayer for all who were affected by this tragedy.
Dennis Perry, Jason Micheli, Karla Kincannon, and Michelle Matthews
