I added a new podcast episode today. This is an essay I wrote for Karen Krogh’s excellent book, “Love is the Spirit: the journey of a courageous and resilient community,” a photographic study of the shooting at Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in 2008 and the year following that tragedy. I thought it would be appropriate to read it since the anniversary is here in just a few days. You can access the podcast here.
