A local paper in the Shenandoah Valley reports:
Frozen gravy, boxed stuffing and whole turkeys seemed to fly out of the Seventh-day Adventist Church on Tuesday as volunteers continued their annual holiday food distribution.

From Sojourners' Magazine, here's Rev Richard Twiss, Terry Leblanc and Raymond Aldred, Ph.D. talking about the revival of indigenous theology in North America.

Due to the outpouring of wide interest and community support through this tragedy, Pacific Union College will be webcasting Thursday's memorial service here.
The college has also set up a memorial site: In Loving Memory
Already it includes hundreds of shared memories, short bios of each young man and stories from the San Francisco Chronicle and the Napa Valley Register.
