The 23rd Psalm is read at almost every Christian or Jewish funeral. Likely it will be read at the upcoming funerals for the two teachers and the elementary school students who were murdered Tuesday in another mass shooting. This Sunday, with heavy and questioning hearts, we will ponder this classic psalm and offer prayers for the victims and their families. We will also listen to Ezekiel’s prophetic critique of leaders who were not “good shepherds,” who were not protecting their people (see Ezekiel 34). May our elected leaders protect our people from violent death from guns.
