What to Say About Virginia Tech

In light of the recent shooting on the campus of Virginia Tech, where 32 people have lost their lives so far, Desiring God Ministries posted a useful article titled, “21 Ways to Minister to Those Who Are Suffering.” John Piper wrote these sincere comments after the events of 9-11, and they have posted them again on their blog in order to help the church minister to those involved with today’s tragedy, as well as those who will be asking questions about it. I would encourage you to read them over (even to click on the link to the full article where the scripture references are included) so that we all might be equipped to minister to those in need.

My prayer is that God would move his people during this time, that others might be comforted and find their only rest is in the Lord Jesus Christ, by whose death sinners are forgiven, by whose resurrection sinners are justified, and by whose coming will one day do away with sin and death once for all.
