WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 /Christian Newswire/ -- National Clergy Council president Rev. Rob Schenck (pronounced SHANK) will today travel from Washington, DC to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, to visit Amish families affected by yesterday's tragic shooting of school children in Nickel Mines.
Mr. Schenck will convey condolences from tens of thousands of church leaders and lay people representing numerous Christian denominations. He will also hold two private prayer meetings at the homes of family members and friends of victims.
"There is no more heinous crime than the deliberate murder of innocent children. To attack the Amish only adds to the evil of such a barbaric act. Our prayer will be for God's love to comfort and heal these shattered lives."
