A MESSAGE FROM BISHOP HERZ-LANE OF THE DELAWARE-MARYLAND SYNOD What is really on my heart and mind tonight is the horrific shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, last Wednesday evening. Two of the nine victims were graduates of the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary and so had many connections with ELCA folk. The shooter, too, was a member of an ELCA congregation. So tonight, let me share with you a prayer written by the Rev. Dr. Clayton J. Schmit, the seminary provost. Please pray this prayer with me in the days to come: "O God of Life, we commit this outrageous act to your mercy. We cannot fathom the hatred that drives a child of your own creation to kill nine others whom you deeply love. In our horror and grief, make us agents of your love. In our anger, make us committed to overcoming violence. In our speechlessness, make us outspoken messengers of your demand for peace. In our helplessness, make us your ambassadors of reconciliation. In our despair, make us bearers of the truth of your resurrection, your eternal kingdom, and your life. Grant these beloved nine your eternal rest, O God, and peace to the millions who mourn. We pray in the unconquerable name of Jesus, our Brother, Savior, and Lord." "And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:7) Peace & Blessings, Bishop Wolfgang D. Herz-Lane Delaware-Maryland Synod, ELCA

**IMPORTANT NOTICE** Due to the large number of people expected to gather at City Hall Plaza on Saturday, May 2, the Maifest scheduled for that date has been cancelled. This event will not be rescheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please join us in our continuing prayers for peace in our city.
Please pray for peace in Baltimore! Especially we pray for the safety of all those who work for peace and order, our police, fire and emergency medical personnel. We also pray for those who have suffered loss in these dark days—may you find peace and comfort in the days ahead. “God, our refuge and strength, you have bound us together in a common life. In all our conflicts, help us to confront one another without hatred or bitterness, to listen for your voice amid competing claims, and to work together with mutual forbearance and respect; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.” (prayer from Evangelical Lutheran Worship, page 76)
