During Sunday service a Baptist minister in Maryville, IL, was shot by a gunman.  My heart goes out to you people of Maryville, Illinois who now are grieving over another sanctuary violated in First Baptist Church.


I will be sending them a card on behalf of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Myers this week.  If you would like to send a card of love and support as well, the church’s address is
