For Religion News Service, Cathleen Falsani writes about Thursday’s prayer services at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California, held in memory of Justin Meek, a Cal Lutheran graduate who was killed in Wednesday’s mass shooting. The Rev. Scott Maxwell-Doherty, a university pastor, said, “Sisters and brothers, while our friends did not die separated from our love or the love of God, so we will not be separated from God while we grieve their deaths.” Meek’s mother, Susan Orfanos, told ABC7 News in Los Angeles on Thursday, “I hope to God no one sends me any more prayers. I want gun control.”
