KUUF Stands With Emmanuel AME

In grief, love and solidarity, Kitsap Unitarian Unviversalist Church stands with Emmanuel AME of Charleston, South Carolina. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. emanuelamechurch.org

On a national front, the Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, issued this statement:

News of last night’s shootings at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in Charleston, SC, fills me with a profound sadness. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the victims and to the entire Emanuel Church community. Unitarian Universalists are sadly familiar with the tragedy of church shootings. When two congregants were killed and six wounded at our Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in 2008, the entire community reached out and embraced our congregation with love and support. We will pass that love along to the Emanuel Church community in any way we can. Emanuel AME Church has faced many hardships over the years, but the church has persevered and thrived. May Emanuel’s faithful find the strength to make their way through the tragedy that has taken the lives of nine of their members, including their pastor. We share their grief, and we stand with them in love and solidarity."
