DisciplesWorld is working on several stories relating to the shootings this past Monday at VA Tech. However, if you have news tips, story ideas, or have a connection to the situation, we would love to hear from you.

Here is one question, for clergy serving congregations and for lay leaders involved in planning worship: Will you include any sort of response to the shootings in your worship service this Sunday? Specifically, in your sermon, or in other elements of the liturgy? If so, will you follow the lectionary texts (if you use the lectionary already) or will you choose certains texts and if so, which ones?

Another question: Will your church respond (or have you responded) in other ways? Discussion groups (Randy Kuss developed a great process for this), Bible studies, vigils, community services, advocacy against violence, outreach to the VA Tech community, etc.?

 We look forward to hearing from you.
