Dear Friends,

We are all deeply saddened by the news this weekend of the tragedy at the Tennessee Valley UU Church (TVUUC), which also affected members of the Westside Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
President Sinkford and the UU Trauma Response Ministry Team are now on the ground in Knoxville. For more information on the UU response, http://www.uua.org/news/newssubmissions/117156.shtml .

Below, you will find a copy of the press release from President Sinkford. Information is also available at www.uua.org . To subscribe to the UUA news announcement listserv, http://lists.uua.org/mailman/listinfo/UUA-L .

What you can do to help:

The Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations in collaboration with the Thomas Jefferson District has established the Knoxville Relief Fund
http://www.uua.org/giving/donatenow/117168.shtml to bring ministry, spiritual care, and practical financial assistance to those affected by the tragedy in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Those killed and injured were from two area congregations that were participating in a joint worship service at TVUUC. Letters of sympathy may be mailed to both Knoxville congregations:

Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church

1. We're going to a memorial service at our church tomorrow.
One of the dead and four of the wounded moved from our congregation to Knoxville last year.

And we're all connected, in any case.

14. K & R - Hope the healing is felt by all soon - Prayers and love sent their way.
It is such a shame that this man was pushed to do this by such hateful people like Savage & Hannity!

I hope the members of the congregations will find peace soon and feel the love that is sent their way by many many people.
