Shooting anniversary low key

Dec. 14 marks one year since 26 children and adults were killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn. The Brookfield (Conn.) Clergy Association, of which Prince of Peace Lutheran Church is a member, will honor the request of Newtown residents to keep the anniversary low key and private, said Mark Nordskog, pastor. Churches will pray for Newtown during worship services on that weekend. “Whether we’re trying to make sense of tragedy ourselves or seeking to help our neighbors in Newtown, we rely on our Lord to provide strength, help and hope,” Nordskog said.
