Prayer service for slide victims: ‘We are confused’

ARLINGTON — About 50 people gathered at Arlington United Church Monday evening for a half-hour prayer service led by Jessica Ronhaar, the family ministry director.

“We confess that we are confused,” Ronhaar said. “Our emotions are high and our answers are few.”

They prayed for the missing and the dead, for the tired searchers, for the displaced and homeless, and for the teachers and counselors. They prayed for their community.

“We pray that your hand of mercy and of peace will be on our communities now,” Ronhaar said.
