NRT members have been in contact with Catherine Snyder, Presbyterian campus minister, George Goodman, of the Presbytery of the Peaks, and with Alexander Evans, Pastor of Blacksburg Presbyterian Church. Evans is also a chaplain with the fire department. ..."
Presbyterian Bloggers, an umbrella organization for such bloggers, had some news this morning that should be of interest to Presbyterians. I checked the Presbyterian News Service site, but there hasn't yet been a news release. I will keep looking and post a link when I find one.
Our prayers and compassion are needed here.
