Condolences and Support from the EDCC

by Julien Hammond on August 15th, 2012

On behalf of the Edmonton and District Council of Churches, I wish to express our sympathy to the Sikh community of Edmonton in light of the recent tragic attack on the Sikh gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.   We are appalled at the mindless savagery of this assault upon people at worship in a tradition that emphasizes peace and hospitality as yours does.  We continue to uphold in our thoughts the survivors and all who mourn, praying that they may find peace and consolation in their belief in God, in the love of family and friends, and in the respect and solidarity of their neighbours in other traditions.

 

Uniting our prayers to your own,

Julien Hammond, President

Edmonton and District Council of Churches
