Seattle Pacific University

I am a proud graduate of Seattle Pacific University.  So today’s tragedy is especially sad.  I spent many hours in the building where the shooting occurred.  It is the science building where I had many biology, chemistry and math courses.  We called it “The SLC” for Science Learning Center.  As someone who spent considerable time both on campus and in that building, my heart breaks for the loss of life and for all who are effected by this senseless act.

Please know I am praying for all of you.  I deeply hope our shared faith brings comfort at this difficult time.
