While these acts are probably not related, the Charleston shooting occurred alongside another shooting at a historically black church in Memphis. Meanwhile, a third church in Ferguson, MO, with ties to the explosive police shooting last year was burned to the ground. The KKK is suspected.
It would be good to take a moment, if the opportunity presents itself, to express a sense of brotherhood to our fellow Christians.

The eternal truth is brotherhood. It is important to make that clear in an hour in which many must be feeling fear.
