On Monday nights, I go to a Community Bible Study.
It's held at a giant church about five miles south of my house.
The church is a beautiful facility.
It's used by several different congregations.
I regularly hear about concerts
and special events
that are happening there
There's a gym so big
that there are bleachers on one side
every week I stop to watch the basketball teams practice
and long for the day when basketball mom
was one of my jobs.
People use the building
Tonight, our Bible Study leader
announced that because of the Christchurch shooting
there is a change in policy
the doors will be locked
all the time
if anyone arrives late for Bible Study
they will need to ring a doorbell
and someone will come
and let them in.
Tonight my heart aches
cannot even worship
