SPU shooting: An appreciation of faith

Thank you for a terrific article, “At SPU, grief without despair” [Local News, June 7]. It richly reveals the power of faith and prayer to uphold and affirm life and community amid tragedy and sorrow.

The article also reflects an appreciation for Seattle Pacific University’s Christian identity in a way that models coverage for all religious expression.

In the face of the two horrible incidents of gun violence in Seattle, and the all-too-many incidents throughout the city this year, It’s a unique moment to come together as a city to prevent the addition of more victims is before us. How will we respond?

Michael Ramos, executive director Church Council of Greater Seattle
