The news interrupted my plan for this week’s blog.
You’ve heard this before: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend your right to say it.” Here’s my variation on the theme:

You see it all, God. Angry words hurled at angry words, judgment piled on judgment, violence facing violence — take away those hearts of stone, Lord. Replace them with hearts of flesh (Ezekiel 36:26). Prince of Peace, fill us all. Restore our souls.
