Church offers vigil in response to OSU violence

Church offers vigil in response to OSU violence

Around 10:00 this morning, a student at Ohio State University plowed a car into a crowd of people before attacking them with a knife. Police responded quickly, and the suspect was shot and killed. Initially, the university reported an active shooter situation, and the campus was placed on lock down for an hour and a half. Nine people were taken to the hospital with injuries, one in critical condition.

This evening at 7pm, St Stephen’s Episcopal Church will host a prayer vigil, in coalition with a number of other campus ministries.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
