At the last minute, Pastor Milne fell ill and was unable to lead worship. Thankfully, the Rev. Laura Stoneback, retired pastor and member of the congregation, stepped and led worship. Pastor Stoneback’s sermon incorporates our intimate inclusion in Jesus’ great Priestly Prayer as we live our lives in a brutally, unkind world. Remembered in preaching and in prayer is the community of Uvalde, TX after the mass shooting that claimed 21 lives at Robb Elementary School; 19 students and 2 teachers.
