A safe place

Celebration Lutheran Church, Chardon, Ohio, provided a safe place for teenagers to gather and process the Feb. 27 shooting at a local high school.

While the victims were not parishioners, Laura Barbin, pastor, said, "Our members know their families.

Chardon is a small community, and we know one another." Celebration gathered for prayer on the day of the shooting and participated in a Feb. 28 ecumenical service.
