I know that it may seem appropriate for our church to address the Newtown shooting, and post about it on social media.

Speaking for myself, sometimes I know better what I don’t want to do or say, than what I want to do or say.

I don’t want to:

  • Know what celebrities are saying about it
  • Post a Bible verse and then move on with my life
  • Use it as an opportunity for an activist rant
  • Blame it on video games or mental illness

What I do know is that evil is real.  It is irrational, unexplainable, and all around us.  There is Light, and there is Darkness.

For a well thought out Christian perspective on this, I usually turn to The Gospel Coalition, Desiring God, or The Resurgence, all excellent blogs that already have posts regarding this horrific crime.

That’s all for now.  You may see a long form post in the near future, or links to some of the best writing on this.
