For the Victims of NIU Tragedy

O merciful Father, who hast taught us in thy holy Word that thou dost not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men: Look with pity upon the sorrows of thy servants for whom our prayers are offered. Remember the victims of the tragedy at Northern Illinois University and their families and loved ones, O Lord, in mercy, nourish their souls with patience, comfort them with a sense of thy goodness, lift up thy countenance upon them, and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Hey there,
I noticed your post on Jesus Creed about coffees you enjoyed so I came over here to see what you were up to. I'm always looking for people with interests in God and in Coffee.

I work primarily in the church, but I moonlight at a coffee shop or two and have a pretty healthy obsession with the black stuff. I'm curious as to how you get your coffee.

I write about coffee at http://billykangas.blogspot.com
I write about God at http://orant.blogspot.com

I'd be really interested in what you'd have to say on both!
Thanks.
