the church council of greater seattle expresses its sorrow and grief after the shooting tragedy at seattle pacific university.  our faith communities join in prayer for the victims and their families.  we are deeply appreciative of the students, faculty and administration at this wonderful institution of higher learning and faith engaged with the world.  we are saddened by such a violent episode to occur at such a place of peace and community. this incidence of gun violence is a sober reminder that the proliferation of gun access all too often leads to tragedy, needless suffering and the loss of life.

we extend our prayers, thoughts and fellowship to our brothers and sisters in christ at seattle pacific university.  we share the same faith in the living christ who accompanies us always, most especially in times of fear, sorrow and suffering.  we ask for christ's tender loving embrace be extended to all in the spu community and for the experience of solace, companionship, faith and community to be felt abundantly in the coming days, weeks and months.

may god's grace and peace shine upon seattle pacific university, upon all of us and upon seattle and the puget sound region!
