We are holding those touched by the tragedy in Lewiston close to our hearts. We know that young people (and all of us) need ways to process, no matter how closely they are tied to this horrific event. We gathered our teens together last Thursday, and over the weekend, to create space for conversation and come together as a community. We continue to support those in our circle who need a space to process.
