Online faith pieces on the tragedy at Newtown

In the shocked numbness following the elementary school shootings in Newtown, CT yesterday,  I prayed for those affected and for all of us as a nation as we grieve and heal.  In my personal experience,witnessing the suffering of innocents has been the toughest experience that ever tested my faith. I can imagine others grappling with this would undergo many of the same feelings and challenges.

There are many online writing about the tragedy. I've compiled a list of faith-related pieces on Newtown below and will be adding to it as I find more.  Please feel free to include more in the comments. This list is meant to include all denominations and faith-related pieces, whether or not church-related. I'm also including a section for parents, in light of the nature of the tragedy.
