Prior to church last Sunday morning, my wife asked, “Are you going to say something about the school slayings in Connecticut this morning?”

Frankly, I hadn’t planned to. The whole thing was just too horrible to think about, much less talk about.

“Peace on earth, good will toward men,” (Luke 2:14) seems but a dream. The recent past has seen angry protesters occupying public venues, a bitter political campaign has been concluded, American citizens are polarized on many issues.

I had told my brother I would go with him to a new church being formed near his home. Which was why I was following him on a Tuesday evening as we navigated about five miles of narrow, winding, country roads in Church Hill, Tenn.
