Unitarian Universalist Church Vigil Brings Comfort to Residents

Rev. Maddie Sifantus urges people to find community during this time.

About 20 residents gathered at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Reading for a Vigil Wednesday evening in remembrance of those lost in the marathon bombings and to feel a sense of comfort and peace.

Three candles were lit for the three victims Martin Richard, Krystle Campbell and Lu Lingzu. Another candle was lit for all those who are suffering.

Rev. Maddie Sifantus wants residents to remember that their faith is there for them. She suggests that residents seek comfort in community in this uncertain time.

"Find community, find people to be with," Sifantus said.

Together, those at the Vigil sang Let There Be Peace on Earth:

Let there be peace on Earth and let it begin with me

Let there be peace on Earth, the peace that was meant to be

With God our Creator, children all are we,

Let us walk with each other in perfect harmony

Let peace begin with me; let this moment be now

With every step I take, let this be my solemn vow:

To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally

Let there be peace on Earth and let it begin with me
