We offer prayers this morning for the family and friends of the victims in the recent Atlanta shootings: Soon Chung Park; Hyun Jung Grant; Suncha Kim; Yong Ae Yue; Paul Andre Michels; Delaina Ashley Yaun; Xiaojie Tan; and Daoyou Feng.
And we pray for Asian Americans who are facing increased prejudice and hate crimes in these days.
