From the editor —
There are many Adventist® church members asking what they can do to help the people touched by the massacre at Virginia Tech University. The Review and Herald and HOPE TV have produced response packets for people in the community near the university, and are asking that you forward this information to your mailing lists.
— VIRGINIA TECH PROJECT —
On Monday, April 16, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history took place at Virginia Tech, a university of 26,000, students near Roanoke, Virginia, leaving dozens dead, and many more injured.
The fallout from this horrific event will impact many people around the nation, but most of the anguish will be borne by the families and friends of the victims, and the students and the community of Blacksburg, Virginia.
The Review and Herald is partnering with HOPE TV in giving you the opportunity to respond to this monumental tragedy. We are putting together packets of hope-filled printed material, which will be distributed by local Seventh-day Adventist churches, to the people living in the Blacksburg area.
For a donation of only $10, you can sponsor one of these packets and make a huge difference.
Here’s what is in each packet:
8-page TouchPoints tracts:
● What to do When You Can’t Forgive
● How to Talk With a Dying Friend
● After Death, Then What?
● Without Goodbyes
● How to Help a Grieving Friend
● How to Survive the Loss of a Loved One
● Friendship’s Healing Power
● Loss — Mellowing the Pain
● Comfort for You
128-page sharing books:
● When Death Isn’t Fair
● The Incredible Power of Grace
● Beyond Anger — Finding the Freedom of Forgiveness
● The Incredible Power of Prayer
● Walking in the Storm, Living in the Sunlight (Ellen White’s Thoughts from
